Young girl elbows ‘hooded man’ who indecently assaulted her at bus stop

A quick-thinking young girl has fought back, elbowing a man who indecently assaulted her at a bus stop on the NSW central coast yesterday.

Police said that just after 8.00am, a 12-year-old girl was waiting for a bus in Kanwal when she was approached and indecently assaulted by a man who was wearing a hooded jacket.

The girl elbowed the man, forcing him to run from the area.


An investigation is now underway with police appealing to the public for information.

The man is described as being of Caucasian appearance, medium build, in his 50s and was last seen wearing a dark blue zipped hooded jacket with the hood over his head and light blue tracksuit pants.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
