Gunshots have been fired at a home in Sydney’s southwest believed to belong to notorious pack rapist Mohammed Skaf.

Police were called to a home on Valencia Street in Greenacre just after 9pm on Sunday night after reports of bullets being fired at the home.

The modest one-storey home is believed to be where Skaf has been residing after he was released from Long Bay correctional complex in October, 2021.

A NSW Police spokesperson said attending officers were told a vehicle had fled the street just moments after the public shooting.

‘There have been no reports of injuries; however, NSW Ambulance paramedics were called to treat a woman for the effects of shock,’ they said.

After his release from Long Bay in October, 2021, Skaf was driven to his family’s home at Greenacre in Sydney’s south-west where he resides with his family

Skaf was released from Sydney’s Long Bay jail after spending almost 21 years in jail for his crimes. He has always maintained he is innocent and not a rapist.

He was part of a gang of Lebanese-Australian youths led by his older brother Bilal who went on a rampage of pack rapes in Sydney’s southwest in the weeks leading up to the 2000 Olympic Games.

At least six women and girls were held against their will and repeatedly sexually assaulted in four attacks that shocked Australia.

One woman was raped 25 times by 14 attackers at three locations as she was called an ‘Aussie pig’ in an ordeal that lasted six hours.

Skaf, who was convicted in relation to two of the rapes, was 17 at the time of the offences and is now 38. His brother Bilal was almost 19 and is now 40.

Upon leaving prison, he was driven to his family’s home, where he lives with his parents, sister and younger brother, where he would be closely supervised.

Following a series of further convictions and appeals that term was reduced to a maximum of 22 years, 11 months and 30 days.

Skaf’s sister told Daily Mail Australia at the time that her family was ready to welcome her brother home.

‘We’re looking forward to him coming home and hopefully he’ll start a life that we’ve never experienced before,’ she said. 

‘We’re pretty excited and happy for him to come home.’

The family lives on a quiet street about 1.7km from Gosling Park where one of the gang’s pack rapes was committed on August 12, 2000.

The gang, led by Bilal Skaf, took two teenagers aged 17 and 18 to a toilet block at Northcote Park, Greenacre, where they were raped by eight men on August 10, 2000. The park, which is 750m from the Skaf family home, is pictured

Skaf had lured a 16-year-old girl he knew to the park where Bilal and a second gang member raped her while a dozen more young men watched.  

He is banned from any form of contact with his victims or co-offenders and cannot visit the Liverpool, Fairfield, Blacktown or Parramatta council areas. 

Skaf is considered a low to medium risk of ‘general re-offending’ but one Corrective Services psychologist assessed him as in the ‘well above average’ range of committing further sex offences.
