A Somalian rapist who overturned a deportation order has been jailed for brutally raping two more women in Birmingham.
Dahir Ibrahim, 31, was sentenced ten years in 2005 after the first sex attack on a prostitute in Edgbaston.
A judge ordered his deportation after serving his sentence, but he appealed and was later given leave to remain in the UK.
Now Ibrahim, from Thornhill Road, Handsworth , has been jailed for life with a minimum of 10 years after raping two ‘vulnerable’ women within six weeks of each other in 2014.
Steven Bailey, prosecuting at Birmingham Crown Court, said the first victim left her home in the early hours of September 5 to buy cannabis.
She was approached by Ibrahim who offered to sell her drugs and persuaded her to follow him down an alleyway off Villa Road, Handsworth.
But once there he threatened her with a Stanley knife before raping her. “She was crying and telling him to stop and started screaming and shouting,” said Mr Bailey.
Mr Bailey said the woman was beaten by Ibrahim during her ordeal before she managed to flee and was helped by a driver on the Birchfield Road.
The second victim was sleeping rough in St Paul’s Square when she was attacked by Ibrahim in the early hours of October 18. He threatened her with a pair of pliers and a screwdriver before raping her.
Ibrahim was tracked down by police through a combination of DNA, forensic and CCTV evidence.
In passing sentence, Judge Murray Creed said: “There was abuse and humiliation. There was severe psychological hurt and harm done. There was degradation. They were sustained incidents and the victims were targeted.”
