Man charged with indecently assaulting 5yo girl in Nowra shop

A man is due to face court after allegedly indecently assaulting a child in a Nowra store on Friday.

Police will allege the 69-year-old man approached a five-year-old girl in the store on Berry Street just after 11.30am and touched her indecently.

The little girl quickly sought help from her grandmother, who was also in the store.


The man was arrested in Bomaderry and taken to Nowra Police Station.

He was charged with two counts of indecent assault upon a child under 16 years and refused bail to appear before Nowra Local Court today.
