Two days later, in broad daylight (about 12.30pm) he allegedly grabbed another 23-year-old woman from behind, while she was walking along the T-way just near the northbound bus stop next to Brown Road.

She was allegedly placed in a choke hold before being dragged behind the bus stop and punched in the head.

The teenage boy was arrested at a property in Montgomery Road the next day.

He was taken to Fairfield Police Station where he was charged with two counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
