Tram stalker who assaulted two women to spend five years in treatment
A tram stalker who violently and sexually assaulted two women passengers on consecutive nights will spend
five years in a treatment facility.
John Dymond, 32, of no fixed address, assaulted the women, aged 18 and 31, on separate occasions after they
got off trams in Melbourne's east in August 2010.
County Court judge Roy Punshon described Dymond's crimes as serious and alarming.
"Your offending is very troubling,'' he said.
Dymond, who has an intellectual disability, pleaded guilty to two counts of indecent assault and one each of
intentionally and recklessly causing injury.
The court heard he had served jail time for sex-related crimes and was on bail for other charges at the time of the tram attacks.
Judge Punshon sentenced Dymond to a partially suspended 20-month jail term for the injury charges, taking into
account time he has already served while on remand.
On the sex charges, Dymond will serve five years in a residential treatment facility.
Judge Punshon said the sex offender program in jail was not set up for people with an intellectual disability, and
the community would be better protected if Dymond spent time in a treatment facility.
Dymond has been sentenced as a serious sexual offender.
