Known as the ‘North Shore Rapist’, 65-year-old Graham Kay was convicted of sexually assaulting eight women aged between 16 and 39 in the mid-1990s – and now he has been released from prison two years early.
Kay, who used to follow teenage and adult women before threatening them with a knife and raping them, has been released on the condition that his movements are electronically monitored for three years.
A judge put the condition in place after deeming Kay was likely to reoffend.
“I am satisfied to a high degree of probability that Mr Kay poses an unacceptable risk of committing a serious sex offence if he is not kept under supervision,” Justice Harrison told smh.com.au.
Now, his victims have come forward to express their fears that the man who raped them is at large and a risk to themselves and other women.
“I’m terrified that he’s going to get me again,” Juanita told A Current Affair.
She was raped by Kay in a dimly lit tunnel when she was in her early twenties.
“I thought he was going to kill me,” she says. “You just think it’s going on forever, it just feels like forever.”
Another of Kay’s victims, Angela*, called for other women who had been attached by Kay to come forward. “Do not be frightened of this man,” she told A Current Affair. “We’ve still got a little bit of control over him at the moment. Let’s stop him now from doing it again.”
Kay’s attacks took place in Balgowlah, Artarmon, Epping, Eastwood and Wollstonecraft, smh.com.au reports.
