Woman sexually assaulted in brutal attack after opening front door

POLICE are still searching for a man who allegedly burst into a woman’s unit, repeatedly punched her in the head and sexually assaulted her in a brutal attack north of the Gold Coast two weeks ago.

Police said the 52-year-old woman was attacked after hearing a noise coming from outside her Woodridge unit around 12.05am on Sunday, March 4.

As she unlocked the door to investigate, police said the woman was confronted by a man who allegedly struck her to the face causing her to stumble back into her unit.


The man then allegedly forced his way inside the woman’s Railway Parade unit and continued to strike her in the face before sexually assaulting her.

The woman was left terrified and shaking in shock with multiple facial and physical injuries.

Detectives are still searching for her attacker and are pleading for anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the area around the time of the attack to come forward.

The man is described as being aged in his 30s, having an olive complexion and being 170cm tall with an athletic build, short black hair and well-groomed facial stubble.

Police are appealing to anyone who may have seen a man acting suspiciously around Railway Parade, or who may have dash-cam footage or CCTV of the area, around the time of the assaults to come forward.
