I’m more surprised this guy got more than community service while living on Cuck Island.
A Syrian refugee who carried out a series of sex attacks a month after he and his family were given special ‘fast track’ asylum has been jailed for 16 months.
Weeks after his arrival in Britain, Hasan Alkhabbaz groped six women as they made their way through the Joe Strummer Subway in Paddington, central London.
The 22-year-old lurked in the underpass before pouncing on his terrified victims between 14 November last year and 3 March.
He admitted six charges of sexual assault at Southwark Crown Court last month and was today jailed for 16 months.
The court heard that he got a sexual thrill of seeing the horror in the faces of his victims as he attacked them.
Alkhabbaz and his relatives were all allowed to settle in the UK after claiming they had suffered terrible ordeals in the Middle East.
Alkhabbaz insisted he was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder when he saw his sister die in a bomb attack.
But psychiatrists who examined Alkhabbaz found there was nothing wrong with him.
Alkhabbaz was handed a suspended sentence in May this year for a similar offence committed on 5 March while investigations into the earlier spree were ongoing.
He was arrested at Heathrow Airport on 8 September trying to board a flight to Egypt and on to Sudan.
Alkhabbaz had a Syrian passport issued just six days after his travel ban.
Sentencing him today, Judge Jeffery Pegden QC said: ‘During the four months that you committed these six offences, you demonstrated predatory behaviour by continually targeting lone, vulnerable women and sexually assaulting them in underpasses in London.
‘These offences formed a pattern of offending and were committed when the women were alone and isolated.
‘They were committed in broad daylight and must have required a degree of planning, as you loitered in the vicinity of the underpasses waiting for a victim.
‘Moreover, there was an escalation in the aggression that you used in grabbing the women’s bottoms or putting your hand underneath their clothing, between their legs and in their groin area, and grabbing their crotches.
‘The offences were clearly sexually motivated and I have no doubt you received sexual gratification from the women’s reactions before you ran away.’
