Refugee On Bail For Rape Goes And Rapes Two More Teen Girls, Explains Disgusting Reason He Did It

A man raped another 2 girls while he was on bail for previously raping 2 girls and his reason was ridiculously unacceptable.


The suspect was an immigrant who was believed to be from Syria after he changed his statement in his pre-sentence which was from Morocco.

Zohair Tomari, 20, invited his 17-year-old victim and her 15-year-old pal to his flat in August 2014 after befriending them.

Once there, Tomari, of Lady Lane, Longford, plied the older girl with alcohol, before slapping and punching both and pulling out a knife.

Tomari, of Longford, Coventry, demanded that the terrified teen open her legs and, as he undid his belt, told her that the more she cried, the more he would hit her, before proceeding to rape her. He then raped the 17-year-old.

Police arrived at the scene after the youngest girl was reported missing, at which point the other informed them of the incident in private.

Unfortunately, he was granted bail and abducted and sexually abused two 13 and 14-year-old girls , as they walked to a friend’s home in the early hours of the morning in August last year.

The pair were enticed into the car – in which Tomari was a passenger – and given drink and cigarettes before being led to a flat in Foleshill, Coventry, where he sexually assaulted them.

At Warwick Crown Court, Tomari, of Longford in Coventry, was found guilty of rape in relation to the incident involving the 17-year-old girl and jailed for a total of 12 years and nine months for both incidents


The court heard how Tomari had been jailed at Coventry Crown Court in January this year after being convicted of trafficking for child sexual exploitation and sexual assaults in relation to the other incident.

He will also have to serve an additional seven years on licence, and has been ordered to register as a sex offender for life.

In relation to the first attack, Judge Andrew Lockhart QC, sentencing, told Tomari: ‘Behaviour of this nature is abhorred in virtually every civilised country on this earth.


A rapist’s defense lawyer even argued his client didn’t understand the “culture of this country.”

‘Sadly, then you were granted bail, and you committed other offences for which you are now in prison.

‘I am driven to conclude you are dangerous. I can see no end to the danger you pose.’


Tomari was handed a nine-and-a-half year sentence for child sexual exploitation and sexual assaults in relation to the that incident and, once half that sentence has been served, an extended sentence of eight years for the rape of the 17-year-old will begin.

Speaking after sentencing, a Home Office spokesman confirmed they would consider deporting Tomari.

He said: ‘Foreign nationals who abuse our hospitality by committing crimes in the UK should be in no doubt of our determination to deport them and we have removed more than 37,000 foreign offenders since 2010.

‘More than 6,100 foreign national offenders were removed from the UK in 2016/17.’

He added that all foreign nationals given a custodial sentence were considered for removal.
