Man charged after indecently assaulting teen girl on bus

A man has been charged after allegedly indecently assaulting a girl on a bus in Sydney’s south-west last month.

About 9.45pm on Friday 17 July 2015, a 17-year-old girl boarded a bus at Cabramatta and a man, who also boarded at the same stop, sat behind her.

Police will allege the man spoke with girl before indecently assaulting her.


The girl got off the bus at the next stop and made her way home.

She reported the incident to her mother the next day, who contacted police from Cabramatta Local Area Command, and an investigation was commenced.

About 10.30am yesterday (Tuesday 11 August 2015), police from Police Transport Command noticed the man at Cabramatta Railway Station.

Following inquiries, the man was arrested at Fairfield and taken to Fairfield Police Station.

The 56-year-old man was charged with assault with act of indecency.

He has been given strict conditional bail and is due to appear at Fairfield Local Court on Monday 31 August 2015.
