Young woman sexually assaulted on Melbourne dance floor

The hunt is on for a man accused of sexually assaulting a young woman on a Melbourne hotel dance floor.

Police say the assault is alleged to have occurred at a hotel in Fitzroy Street about 12.30am on Sunday 27 August.

“The 21-year-old woman was on the dance floor when an unknown man approached her and indecently assaulted her,” Victoria police said in a statement.


As security attempted to kick the man and two of his friends out of the venue, the guard was punched in the face.

The trio then ran from the scene.

Victoria police have since released images of three men that they believe may be able to assist with their enquires. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000
