Neighbours reported hearing “bangs” and sounds similar to firecrackers before emergency vehicles arrived.
Security footage, according to The Daily Telegraph, showed a white car outside the home before three gunshots went off and swearing and screaming was heard. The vehicle then left the scene.
Police have commenced investigations into who was behind the attack.
Mohammed and Bilal Skaf led the notorious Skaf gang which pack raped and degraded six women aged between 16 and 18 years old in a rampage that horrified Australia just before the 2000 Olympics.
During the gang’s four-week reign of terror, the gang humiliated the young women by calling them “Aussie pigs” as they forced them into “doing it Leb style” and then hosed them down afterwards.
Mohammed walked free from Long Bay jail in October last year. Bilal remains in prison.
Details of the notorious crimes the gang committed over two decades ago appalled Australians and when pictures first emerged of the baby-faced brothers, the general public also couldn’t believe young boys could be capable of such acts.
Mohammed showed no remorse for his crimes, making sexually inappropriate remarks to female staff at the Kariong Juvenile Justice Centre where he was incarcerated and continued to blame his victims for initially agreeing to go with him because “they came out with us as soon as I asked them”.
His parole was denied in February 2020, with the State Parole Authority mentioning that “it appears that he still blames the victims for his offending, has no victim empathy and refuses to take responsibility for his actions”. His parole was denied again that November.
Now, he has been released he will be subject to strict conditions including wearing an electronic ankle monitor, and a ban on entering the LGAs of Liverpool, Fairfield, Blacktown and Parramatta where the rapes were committed.
