Image of man released following sickening sexual assault of 18yo on bus

An image of a man wanted over the sickening sexual assault of an 18-year-old girl on a bus on the state’s Central Coast earlier this month has been released.

About 1.45pm on Monday 14 December 2015, an 18-year-old woman was waiting at a bus stop on Railway Street, Woy Woy, when an unknown man approached her.

Police have been told the man and woman started walking away from the bus stop towards Woy Woy, when the woman ran back to the bus stop and boarded a bus to Umina.


The man followed her onto the bus and sat next to the woman, where he indecently assaulted her.

About 2.10pm, the man got off the bus at Trafalgar Street near West Street, Umina Beach.

It’s believed he caught the train from Regents Park to Woy Woy earlier in the day.

Officers attached to Brisbane Water Local Area Command are investigating the incident and have released images of a man who may be able to assist with inquiries.

The depicted man is of Caucasian appearance, aged in his 40s, wearing a blue button up shirt, light blue pants or jeans, black or brown lace up shoes, a brown hat, and carrying a black backpack.

Anyone with information is urged to come forward.
