An ice dealer stalked two teenage girls as they walked home before he barged into their unit, raped one and sexually assaulted both.
Daniel Allen, 43, followed the girls, 17 and 18, from a train station on Christmas Day in 2017.
Four days later, just after midnight, he barged into their unit in Resevoir, Melbourne, pretending to be a neighbour.
He forced the girls to smoke ice with him and then slept in the bed of one of the victims.

The next day he told the girls he was now living in their unit and made them travel in a car with him as he delivered ice to customers, reported the Preston Leader.
The girls told police they were afraid to argue with Allen because they thought he was ‘crazy’.
The 18-year-old said she had sex with Allen under duress because she was terrified he might rape her younger friend if she did not.
On one occasion in the unit, he pointed at the 17-year-old girl and said ‘I want you’.
Allen then later raped her despite her begging him to stop and saying ‘she was just a kid’.
He sexually assaulted both girls.
Allen was arrested in the suburb of Melton on January 8, 2018.
He admitted to having sex with the 18-year-old but denied he raped the 17-year-old.
Earlier this month he was found guilty of rape, attempted rape, sexual assault and assault with intent to commit a sexual offence.
Allen appeared in court for a plea hearing via video link on November 20.
He has been previously convicted of assault with a weapon, assault and blackmail.
He will be sentenced at a later date.
