WA sex fiend Allon Lacco lives near schools

ONE of WA’s most violent sexual predators has moved to Victoria, where he is living near two schools under an assumed identity.

Allon Mitchell Lacco, 42, is a career criminal with convictions for rape, aggravated indecent assault, grievous bodily harm and breaking and entering.

He was dubbed a “monster” in the Supreme Court after the vicious bashing and sexual assault of an 11-year-old girl as she slept in her Leederville home in 1989.

That attack came just weeks after he raped a 29-year-old woman as she lay in bed next to her two-year-old son.

Lacco moved to the leafy Geelong suburb of Belmont several weeks ago, within 600m of two primary schools, where he has assumed the name of Allon Williams.

Victorian police are monitoring Lacco, but say he is not on the Victorian register of sex offenders.
Residents of Ursa St, Geelong, were outraged this week to learn of their new neighbour’s background, and too frightened about their own safety to be named.

“It’s very worrying,” one woman said. “We will definitely be on our guard.”
Another said he was disgusted families had no rights to be warned about sexual predators moving into their neighbourhoods.

“There are families with young children in that street and it’s not right,” he said. “We certainly don’t want him here.”

It is believed Lacco has claimed to be living with relatives, though neighbours said a steady stream of tenants had lived in the newly built home in the past few months.

A WA detective who has dealt with Lacco several times in the past 15 years described him as a “very nasty piece of work”.

“He’s one of WA’s worst criminals and his record shows that,” he said.

Lacco was given a nine-month suspended sentence in May this year for bashing a 42-year-old woman who suffered a broken cheekbone.

The sentence provoked outrage from the public and Police Commissioner Karl O’Callaghan, who said the magistrate had “showed such a lack of regard for the safety of the community by releasing Allon Lacco”.

“Lacco has a shocking criminal record and police believe the risk of him re-offending is high,” Mr O’Callaghan said at the time.

Kylie Newman, a spokeswoman for national internet sex offender registry Mako, said it was outrageous that a repeat sex offender such as Lacco could move into a neighbourhood anonymously.

“The loopholes that exist in the sex offender registries mean these people can just go from state to state and slip under the radar,” she said.

“This is a good example of why we need a public register of offenders so people can be warned.”

A spokeswoman for WA’s Department of Corrective Services said Lacco was not subject to the Dangerous Sexual Offenders Act — introduced to keep the worst sex offenders in jail beyond their sentences — because his most recent offence was not of a sexual nature.
