Young girl indecently assaulted after getting into strangers car

A young girl has been indecently assaulted after getting into a strangers car in the NSW Hunter Region yesterday.

Police said that the 11-year-old girl was walking along George Booth Drive in Stockrington around midday when she was approached by a man who stopped his car and spoke to her, offering her a lift.

The youngster, who was dressed in a yellow and blue fairytale costume, got into the man’s car where she was allegedly indecently assaulted.


“She got in the car and when they were near Richmond Vale, the man stopped the car and indecently assaulted her before she got out of the car and ran away,” NSW police said in a statement.

“A short time later, a passing motorist stopped to render assistance, contacting police and emergency services.”

“Officers conducted an extensive search of the area for the man; however, he was not located.”

The man is described as being of Caucasian appearance, with a slim build, short blond hair, a trimmed beard, with a small moustache, and aged in his early 40s.

At the time, he was wearing jeans, a red jacket and reading glasses, and driving a dark red-coloured or maroon 4WD with silver rims.

Investigators are urging anyone with information to come forward immediately.
