A man who broke into a 76-year-old woman’s home and raped her missed his son’s cancer operation so he could carry out the attack.
Mugahed Adam Eldouma, 39, got into the victim’s house in Armadale, Perth in June last year through a window and snatched her mobile phone before punching and sexually assaulting her.
He was convicted of four offences by a West Australian District Court jury on Friday as the court heard the victim’s harrowing triple-zero call on the day of the attack.

The victim, a disability pensioner suffering from arthritis and a heart condition, could be heard saying frantically ‘oh he’s here’ and screaming after the operator asked for her address, 7News reported.
Eldouma also said during the attack ‘I haven’t been with a woman for a while’, the court heard.
The court heard when the victim, who has since died, asked ‘I could die from this, what would you do then?’, he responded: ‘I would bury you’.
The rapist was found in the home’s backyard when police arrived 14 minutes later.
In a phone call played in court, Eldouma also told his wife, who is the mother of his children, that he didn’t rape his victim.
‘Adam did you do it,’ his wife asked. He replied: ‘I swear to God no’.
The 36-year-old should have been by his son’s side in hospital when he was instead raping the elderly woman.
The boy was having his leg amputated.
‘What the f*** were you doing there when your son was getting his leg chopped off?’ Eldouma’s wife shouted at him in one taped conversation.
In another call, Eldouma told his son: ‘I’ve been worried about you.’

‘Yeah – I miss you Dad,’ his son responds.
In police interviews after the attack, Eldouma initially claimed he was the victim’s carer and said she was ‘like my mum’.
But he did not even know his victim’s name, police said.
Eldouma was convicted by a West Australian District Court jury on Friday after they deliberated for less than one hour.
He kept his head down as the verdicts were delivered and showed no emotion.
Psychological and pre-sentence reports were ordered ahead of a sentencing hearing on January 30.
Eldouma was remanded in custody until his sentencing and faces a mandatory 15 years in prison.
