Somalian Dahir Ibrahim successfully evaded deportation 10 years ago after he raped a woman in Britain. After his release, he went on to sexually assault and beat two more women and is now serving life in prison.

Ibrahim, a 31-year-old migrant, was convicted of raping a woman in 2005, but managed to stay in the country because his lawyers said he had no idea that rape was “unacceptable,” Yahoo News reports. Ibrahim’s appeal of the deportation order worked.

After he was released, Ibrahim sexually assaulted and beat two more women in Birmingham within six weeks of each other in 2014. Once police arrested him, Ibrahim completely denied touching the women and yet, investigators turned up the exact combination of clothing the women identified the perpetrator as having worn during the attacks.

A forensic examination found Ibrahim’s DNA under one of the woman’s fingernails and his DNA was also found on the second woman’s skin where he had bit her.

The evidence was undeniable.

Ibrahim tried to again dodge the charges, but it didn’t work. So indisputable was the evidence against Ibrahim that he modified his plea to guilty.

“The evidence against Ibrahim was indisputable and, in desperation, he tried to claim that it was a ‘fit up’, but a few days before he was due to stand trial changed his plea to guilty,” Detective Constable Gavin McGrath said:

“I am pleased that he has spared these women the further ordeal of a trial and he will now be behind bars and no longer a danger to the public,” he added.

Ibrahim is now serving a life sentence and must remain in prison for at least 10 years.
