Bone-chilling details of how a seven-year-old girl was raped by a 54-year-old pedophile came to light in court on Monday.

Earlier this month, the little girl, whose name cannot be revealed for legal reasons, was allegedly raped by Anthony Peter Sampieri in a toilet cubicle at a dance studio in Kogarah, in South Sydney, Australia. What's more? Sampieri is also accused of filming a part of the disgusting sex attack on his cell phone, Daily Mail reports.

Appearing before Waverley Local Court on Monday, Sampieri wore prison greens with two black eyes. Ken Buckman, his barrister, did not apply for his release. Sampieri allegedly forced the minor to perform sex acts on him and filmed her doing so, according to law enforcement authorities.



 

The 54-year-old is accused of choking the girl to "render (her) incapable of resistance, done so with the intent of enabling himself to commit another indictable offense, to wit, sexual assault", stated court documents. Sampieri consented to a police application for a forensic procedure and spoke twice as he was arraigned before a judge. His next court appearance at the Sutherland Local Court is scheduled on January 23.

Two men confronted and attempted to detain Sampieri at the dance studio in Kogarah at 7.55 pm on November 15 after concerns regarding the girl's welfare were raised. A violent struggle ensued after the men allegedly found Sampieri naked with the girl in the toilet. One of the men was left with several stab wounds during the scuffle.

Sampieri, who is understood to have Hepatitis C and liver damage, was rushed to the hospital for treatment, where he remained under police guard and in the custody of Corrective Services NSW.



 

The accused was transported to Maroubra Police Station on Sunday afternoon after being deemed fit by doctors, where detectives from the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad arrested him.

A string of charges against Sampieri was brought forth after a probe into the incident led by detectives from the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad under Strike Force Berliet.

The charges include sexual intercourse with a child under 10 years old, wounding or grievous bodily harm with intent, aggravated kidnapping and attempting, or assaulting with intent, to have sexual intercourse with a child under 10. He was also charged with choking a person with an intent to commit an indictable offense, using a child under 14 to make child abuse material, aggravated act of indecency being filmed, aggravated indecent assault and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

As investigations under Strike Force Berliet continue, Sampieri was refused bail and appeared via video link at Waverly Local Court on Monday.
