'Playboy rapist' sues Catholic order for abuse

He was dubbed the playboy rapist - a male model and occasional actor whose seductive charms hid a violent, narcissistic streak that eventually saw him jailed for more than seven years over the brutal rape of a woman in Sydney's eastern suburbs.

But now Simon Monteiro says that, years before he cut a swath through Sydney's high-society women, it was he who was the victim of violence and sexual abuse at the hands of the Catholic Church's St John of God order.

The 45-year-old, who once dated Oscar nominee Barbara Hershey, is suing the order, three of its brothers, the Maitland diocese, and the Sydney archdiocese in the Supreme Court for at least $750,000 in damages over what he claims was years of rape, intimidation and abuse.

In a statement of claim lodged with the court this year Monteiro says he was ''intimidated, terrified and terrorised'' during his two-year stay at the order's Kendall Grange college for boys with behavioural problems between 1980 and 1982, when he was just 13. Monteiro says that Brother Bernard Kevin McGrath and two other brothers referred to in court documents as ''Brother Joseph'' and ''Brother Daniel'' anally raped him on ''numerous occasions'' while he was at the school.

Monteiro is one of hundreds of former Kendall Grange pupils in Australia and New Zealand who say they were abused by St John of God brothers.

McGrath was extradited from Australia and convicted over assaults on boys in the 1960s at the order's New Zealand home.
