Young boy left traumatised after being sexually assaulted by man in public spa

A teenage boy has been left traumatised after he was indecently assaulted by a man at a leisure centre in Liverpool yesterday.

About 12.30pm, a 16-year-old boy was sitting in a spa at a leisure centre on Memorial Avenue.

A 56-year-old man entered the spa, before he approached the boy and allegedly indecently assaulted him a number of times, despite the boy attempting to stop him.


The boy left the spa and alerted staff members, who contacted police.

Officers attached to Liverpool Local Area Command attended and commenced inquiries.

A short time later, a 58-year-old man was arrested at the scene and taken to Liverpool Police Station.

He was charged with two counts of act of indecency, assault and intimidation.

The man has been refused bail, to appear at Liverpool Local Court today (Monday 7 September 2015).

The man and the boy are not known to each other.
