There were dramatic scenes in a Sydney courtroom as the father of a victim of a paedophile attacked the man at the end of his trial.

The defendent was convicted on two charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child and he was sentenced to at least six years.

But before the judge could finish addressing the court, the father of the five-year-old victim of the paedophile jumped over the railings and attacked him.

It is reported in the Australian press that the father landed a number of punches on the face of the 64-year-old, who screamed 'I'm innocent' throughout the attack.

It took five people to pull the father off the paedophile.

In addition, while the brawl was takling place the wife of the paedophile shouted at the child's mother that her daughter was a “liar and a bitch”.

That led to the mother of the victim attacking her, also punching her in the face.

Now the two aggressors could face charges for the court room attacks.
