Mohammad Hassan Al-Bayati has been found guilty of kidnapping a 3 year old girl and then masturbating in front of her.
His excuses will make you sick !
In December 2016, Mohammad Hassan Al-Bayati took the three-year-old girl from the DFO shopping centre playground at Homebush while her mum was shopping. The then 29-year-old masturbated in front of the girl for about 11 minutes, in a secluded area.
Imagine her horror for 11 minutes, she would have been desperately trying to get back to her mother, she would have been desperately trying to get away, to be anywhere but where Mohammad had her, and was holding her while he committed his monstrous acts.
Mr Al-Bayati responded to the call for the lost little girl and found her, however rather than returning her safely to her parents and protecting her from danger like any half decent security guard would,…. he took her to a nearby corridor and exposed himself to her.
The girl and her older sister had been dropped at a children’s playground while their mother did her shopping. 30 minutes later Mr Al-Bayati, dressed in his centre security uniform of a white collared shirt, black pants and shoes, approached the girl in the playground.
He then spoke with her for two minutes before he was spotted on CCTV footage holding her hand and guiding her away from the playground. Which you can see in the last shot on the poster. Cameras from inside DFO Homebush show Mr Al-Bayati then walked down one of the centre’s corridors and into a locked fire exit stairwell.
Mohammad Al-Bayati was arrested at his home on Bow Bowing on the following Wednesday. He was charged with committing an act of indecency with a child and taking a person with the intent to take advantage. His charges were later upgraded to include kidnapping.
Al-Bayati admitted taking the girl into the stairwell but claimed he was trying to find her mum, later suggesting the girl was looking for a cockroach. Al-Bayati’s barrister said there was not much evidence about precisely the way in which the girl was assaulted, and the DNA found on the girl, suggests any touching didn’t last long.
You have got to be kidding me ! His defence is THE TOUCHING DIDN’T LAST LONG !
SHE WAS 3 YEARS OLD, YOU ABHORRENT MONSTER. HOW DARE YOU SUGGEST THAT THE FACT THE DNA SAYS IT DIDN’T LAST LONG, MAKES IT OK. IF HE TOUCHED HER EVEN ONCE… THAT’S BAD ENOUGH !
Didn’t last long, what kind of an excuse is this, that’s like saying “Well your honour, the evidence suggests his death didn’t last long, so it’s not really a bad murder, now is it?”
In a victim impact statement, the girl’s family told the court, “our peaceful family life was destroyed and never to be the same again”. The family said they were proud that “she was able to tell police” what happened. We at FACAA are very proud of her too, what a brave little angel.
Her mother said her family were “in shock for several weeks” and that she had recurrent nightmares and separation anxiety. The Crown said the girl thought Al-Bayati was a policeman. The family is now trying to teach the young bub that “not every man in uniform is a predator”
As always, if anyone knows this little girl’s family please let them know we would happily offer to help her and them with our Phoenix program. She is already braver than any fighter who represents FACAA, so we know she has the heart of a fighter.
Al-Bayati’s denial of any wrongdoing was a focus of the Crown’s sentencing submissions on Friday. They say the former security guard was given multiple opportunities to explain what he was doing in the stairwell with the child but he had no answer at all.
This shows a complete and utter lack of remorse and lack of compassion for his victim. He is almost denying any wrong doing what-so-ever which shows, he WILLno doubt RE-OFFEND !
Al-Bayati remains in custody ahead of being sentenced on August 27, of course FACAA will bring you any and all updates.
