Man charged with indecently assaulting girl on bus

Police have charged a man after he indecently assaulted a girl on a bus in the Hunter Region earlier this month.

About 8.20am on Thursday 5 November 2015, a 17-year-old girl was travelling on a bus between Speers Point and Hamilton, when a man, who boarded the bus shortly before, moved to sit next to her.

The man then allegedly indecently assaulted the girl before she stood up and moved seats.


When the man exited the bus at Broadmeadow, a witness contacted police.

As a result of investigations, a 37-year-old Cardiff man was arrested at Newcastle Police Station last Friday and charged with two counts each of indecent assault and common assault.

He has been granted strict conditional bail and is due to appear at Newcastle Local Court on Thursday 26 November 2015.
