Teen girl repeatedly touched inappropriately by man on train

A man will appear in court later this month after he was charged by PTC officers for allegedly twice committing an act of indecency against a teenage girl on a train.

About 5.50am on Monday 3 August 2015, a 17-year-old girl boarded a city-bound South Line train in school uniform.

At Warwick Farm, a man boarded the train and sat next to the girl. Police will allege the man touched the girl a number of times.


The girl stood up and alighted from the train at Strathfield Railway Station.

About 5.50am on Tuesday 4 August 2015, the girl was again aboard a city-bound South Line train, and shortly after leaving Liverpool Railway Station, the same man entered the carriage and sat next to her.

The man again touched the girl and when she tried to move away, he allegedly pushed her back into her seat. The girl punched the man and was able to leave her seat and exit the train.

The matter was later reported to police from the Police Transport Command, who commenced an investigation.

About 5.50am today (Tuesday 11 August 2015), the girl boarded a city-bound South Line train and the man also entered the train at Warwick Farm, sitting next to the girl.

The man was arrested by plain clothes police officers and conveyed to Fairfield Police Station.

He was later charged with two counts of commit act of indecency with person sixteen years or older, and assault with act of indecency.

The 20-year-old Warwick Farm man was granted conditional bail to appear at Liverpool Local Court on Monday 31 August 2015.
