Victims who were harassed by an alleged child sex offender have revealed the sickening details from phone calls with the man.
Anthony Sampieri, 54, was allegedly found with his pants down in the bathroom of a dance studio in Kogarah, south Sydney, on Thursday night with a seven-year-old.
Amid the horrific allegations, it was revealed Sampieri was on parole for the violent rape of a 60-year-old woman in the Illwarra region in 2012.
Court documents revealed Sampieri had been ringing women in the lead-up to the aggravated sexual assault on October 22, 2012, during an alleged ‘ice-binge’.

Sampieri allegedly went by the name ‘Ron’ when he called two female victims and suggested sex acts, news.com.au reported.
One victim, an advertising saleswoman, said she was called 15 days before he raped the 60-year-old woman at knife point.
The woman said it started on October 7 when she received the ‘dirty’ phone call while driving at night.
‘When I got to work the next day and told (my colleagues) another one had got a phone call, but it was worse than mine,’ she said.
The calls escalated and he allegedly called another saleswoman, then 23, at her grandmother’s house.

When he was told the 23-year-old was not at home he harassed the grandmother with a dirty phone call.
Another victim, 40 at the time, said she received a brief but offensive call from Sampieri.
The journalist who worked at a newspaper in NSW said her photograph featured alongside her articles.
Sampieri allegedly graphically described the sex act he wished to perform on her.
The woman hung up on him immediately and made a statement to Wollongong police as she was worried the harassment would escalate.
The constable said he didn’t believe the man was a threat and they wouldn’t do anything because they didn’t have the budget.
‘Then he did the rape and police found the newspaper clippings with our photos with duct tape and cable ties in his bedroom,’ she said.
The advertising saleswoman told news.com.au she felt dreadful that Sampieri went onto rape the woman two weeks later.
The sickening details come amid revelations a woman made a complaint to Kogarah police station about a phone call in the weeks prior to the dance studio assault.
In a New South Wales police conference on Wednesday, Deputy Commissioner Metropolitan Field Operations Jeff Loy told reporters an internal investigation would be launched to find the ‘point of truth’.
‘Since the 15th of November, the investigators have detailed a number of allegations against the offender, in particular some harassing phone calls to a number of female people,’ he said.
‘In particular one of those was to a woman several weeks ago and that lady did make a complaint to the Kogarah police station.’
Dept. Comm. Loy said he understood the offender was interviewed by police but the parole board was not notified about the harassment.
‘That investigation, is now part of the internal investigation, as I want to know the point of truth as to what the police action was, how the person was identified and what action was taken,’ he said.

Police investigating the 2012 rape searched Sampieri’s home, where they found a list of names of women aged between 23 and 83.
Next to the women’s names were comments such as ‘very young’ and ‘older’, the Daily Telegraph reported.
On October 6, 2012, Sampieri rang one woman at about 8.30pm and told her how he would assault her.
Another woman heard ‘grunting and groaning’ when she answered a phone call from him.
Police also found a ‘rape kit’ in the bedroom which included gaffer tape, cable ties, nylon rope and a roll of wire.
Officers also found pornographic DVDs and magazines.
Reports indicate the evidence was passed from Wollongong police to detectives investigating the Kogarah dance studio assault.
The convicted sex offender was arrested for raping a 60-year-old woman in the Illawarra region, New South Wales, in 2012 (pictured: toilet where the seven-year-old girl was allegedly assaulted)
At the District Court in 2013, Sampieri pleaded guilty to raping the woman at his Wollongong home.
He lured her to his home before ordering her to strip, wielding a knife and saying: ‘Now we’ll have some fun.’
Sampieri remains in hospital under police guard and is yet to be charged.
Sampieri had spent three years incarcerated for the 2012 rape and was granted parole in September 2017.
The State Parole Authority revoked the parole within hours of Thursday’s arrest, launching calls for a review of the NSW early release program.
