The student was jailed after attacking seven women and girls, the youngest aged just 12.

A Libyan student who sexually assaulted seven girls and women in Melbourne has been jailed for more than five years.

Almahde Ahmad Atagore, 28, had been in Australia only a month and was having trouble adapting to the Australian culture when he committed the attacks, a court heard.

Atagore, who is a Muslim, was upset and sexually aroused at the way women in Australia dressed and behaved, the Victorian County Court heard today.

Between August and September last year Atagore, who was in Australia on a Libyan government scholarship, embarked on a string of sexual assaults over four days in Mentone and at Flinders Street railway station.

His youngest victim was just 13.

Sentencing Atagore, Judge Margaret Rizkalla said she accepted there was a link between the cultural issues, along with Atagore’s depression, and the offences.

“It seems you were very ill prepared to deal with cultural differences,” she said.

Judge Rizkalla said the assaults required strong condemnation, as they occurred when the victims were simply walking in a public area.

She jailed Atagore, who pleaded guilty to assault with intent to rape, committing an indecent act with a child under 16 and five counts of indecent assault, for five years and three months.

Atagore must serve a minimum of three years in prison before being eligible for parole.

The court heard Atagore, who has already served 259 days in custody, will likely be deported when he completes his sentence.

    Four years is not enough for this Muslim.He was 28 when he did the rapes,he should have received 28 years with no parole.I see that the judge felt sorry for him because he was depressed and did not understand the cultural differences and was I’ll prepared for the way white women dressed.Australian government should not allow Muslim men into Australia until these Muslim men receive cultural training with Australian women and men in another country.The Muslim men that expect to travel to Australia would socialize with Australian women by standing and siting next to them.I don’t understand why he was depressed.There are Muslim communities in Melbourne where he could socialize with.

      Ignorant much? Assault was the charge NOT rape:-

      “He was 28 when he did the rapes,”.

      Typical american attitude, lets tar all with the same brush shall we?! you need an education before you can formulate a constructive and accurate argument.

    What this Muslim man did to those women/ girls is proof that multiculturalism is a failure,a liberal pipedream.To many Muslim men have a hard time adapting and excepting the way white women dress and think that Muslim men have a duty to rape western women.I wonder if this Muslim man would have raped an Aboriginal woman or another dark skinned woman.I don’t accept the judge’s logic for the assults.

    Who are you,an Australian?I made a mistake printing rape instead of sexual assault.I am saying that he should have gotten a sentence that equaled his age(28).Do want to know what the typical attitude is among us American men and women about Muslim men raping white women or sexually assaulting white women or non Muslim women?we think that they should be castrated by a doctor.Tell you what I would have done to this Libyan student,since he only sexually assaulted 13 women and girls,I would had a doctor castrated him and flown him back to Libya.Your Australian government is like or government when it comes to Islam.Doesn’t matter if it’s republicans or democrats,they are dhimmitute to Islam/Muslims.
