A man has been jailed for two years for breaking into a woman’s home and licking her private parts as she slept next to her boyfriend.
Joseph Taouk, 35, broke into the Potts Point home in inner-city Sydney at 3.30am on February 9, 2015, reported The Sydney Morning Herald.
She thought it was her boyfriend but after 20 seconds or so realised it was not him.
She slid her hand across their bed and when she felt her partner still next to her, grabbed his arm, dug her fingernails in and whispered: ‘Someone is there.’
‘What the f**k. Who are you?,’ the partner said.
‘Sorry, sorry I thought this was the boarding house. The front door was open,’ Taouk replied.
The boyfriend then took Taouk to the front door and returned to find his girlfriend sobbing.
Taouk had left her feeling scared, terrified and physically sick but she didn’t want to tell police.
However, she did tell her stepfather, who took her to Kings Cross police the next day.
Hours later, police found a ‘nervous and sweating’ Taouk walking around the area.
Taouk pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a woman and the aggravated break and enter into her home.
On Monday, he faced a NSW District Court judge who sentenced him to a minimum of two years in jail.
Taouk was caught by police after his DNA was found on the woman’s pyjama pants and he was captured on CCTV footage on the couple’s street.
The judge read an apology letter from Taouk which explained he was mentally ill and ‘was just following voices’.
‘I am sincerely sorry towards making the victim feel so disgusted and violated and wish none of this had ever happened,’ Taouk wrote.
‘I am so sorry with all my heart and hope the victim is getting better with her life, no woman deserves that in her life.’
With time already served, Taouk will be eligible for release in March. (Daily Mail)
