Mohammed Skaf is a Lebanese Australian serial gang rapist and one of fourteen men who was convicted for committing the Sydney Gang Rapes attacks against women in Sydney in 2000. He is also the younger brother of Bilal Skaf.
In the year 2000, Mohammed Skaf's brother Bilal Skaf led a gang of Lebanese Australians that engaged in a series of gang rapes against women and girls as young as 14 years of age.
Mohammed, 17 at the time, his brother Bilal and at least 14 other men went on a rampage lasting several weeks raping at least six schoolgirls. The group lured girls away from locations such as shopping centres before repeatedly forcing them to perform sexual acts on men.
Mohammed Skaf was originally jailed for 31 years but his sentence was reduced on appeal to 22 years with a non-parole period of 18 years.
In 2017, Skaf had his first attempt at parole denied.
In August 2019, Mohammed Skaf had his second attempt at parole refused after prison authorities reported he was repeatedly breaking prison rules, including by possessing pornography and contraband in his cell. The parole authorities also found his refusal to acknowledge the crimes and his victims to be concerning.
He made his third attempt at parole a few months later but was again unsuccessful.
