A man will face court today after being charged with sexually assaulting a young woman more than 20 years ago.

About 1am on Saturday 20 August 1994, a 20-year-old woman was walking on Ellen Subway, Mortdale, when a man approached her from behind, pushing her to the ground and assaulting her.

The man allegedly sexually assaulted the woman before fleeing the scene.


The victim reported the incident to her mother, who then alerted police. An investigation into the incident was launched.

Following advancements in DNA analysis technology, police yesterday (Thursday 3 September 2015) arrested a 55-year-old Granville man.

He was taken to Parramatta Police Station where he was charged with aggravated sexual assault.

The man was refused bail and will appear in Parramatta Local Court today (Friday 4 September 2015).
