Rana Elasma Age
Rana Elasmar was 38 weeks pregnant when Stipe “Steven” Lozina approached her, repeatedly hit her and hit her head in Parramatta Bay in November 2019.
The 32-year-old mother of four deliberately pulled her abdomen away from her abuser and prayed to God to protect her daughter because she feared she would be killed.
Elasmar, who was wearing a hijab at the time, said the 44-year-old woman asked for money before beating her and shouted “You Muslims raped my mother.”
Lozina appeared via video link on Thursday before Judge Christopher Craigie of the District Court of New South Wales in Parramatta, but was silenced after repeating the statement several times.
Judge Craigie later removed the unrepresented man from the hearing, an action he had never taken before, after the continued disruption.
Prosecutor Sara Gul
At a previous hearing, Lozina interrupted prosecutor Sara Gul to ask her for information about her racial origin.
“Explosion of violence”
Judge Craigie said Lozina hit Elasmar about 14 times in a “very dynamic and rapid explosion of violence” as she “cowered in terror.”
The fact that Elasmar and her unborn child survived, she said, was due to luck and other people’s intervention, rather than Lozina’s restraint.
“The victim was terrified,” Judge Craigie said.
Lozina previously said that she attacked Elasmar because he did not give her money, but avoided several questions from Gul about whether he hated Muslims.
“I don’t hate them,” said the defendant.
“But I don’t get along with them. I have nothing to do with them. ”
The perpetrator also said that he was a “chronic paranoid schizophrenic”, that he was sorry for what happened and that he was “too violent” to be free in public.
“I belong to a hospital,” he told the court in September.
Lozina was sentenced to a full sentence of three years after repeatedly refusing to be represented by legal aid.
She will be eligible for parole on June 3, 2022.
