14yo flasher arrested and charged as more victims come forward, Gold Coast

A 14-year-old boy has been arrested and charged over multiple alleged flashing incidents in Helensvale this month.

Investigations began after six women reported incidents of wilful exposure on three separate occasions across January.

One of them, a 21-year-old woman, also reported being grabbed on the buttocks during one of the occasions.

Police appealed the public to try and locate the boy on Wednesday and since then, two more women have also come forward.

In addition to the five incidents of wilful exposure and one of indecent assault, police now also allege that the boy flashed and grabbed a 39-year-old woman on December 28, as well as a 35-year-old woman on January 8.

Following investigations, police arrested a boy at Helensvale on Thursday afternoon.

He’s been taken into custody and will be dealt with under the provisions of the Youth Justice Act.
