A MAN has been charged with indecently assaulting a teenage girl at Central Railway Station yesterday.
The sickening incident happened near the light rail platform just after 11.45am.
Police said a 15-year-old girl had just gotten off a tram when she was approached by a 36-year-old man.

“Police will allege that the man spoke inappropriately to the girl before he touched her face and then kissed her,” NSW Police said in a statement.
“The man continued to touch the girl and kissed her again.”
Luckily, the girl’s 12-year-old brother arrived to meet her at the station and approached the man when he saw what was happening.
“The man swung a punch at the boy, which narrowly missed his head and struck his backpack,” police said.
As the man walked away, the children were able to alert officers who were patrolling nearby.
The man was arrested and taken to Day Street Police where a small quantity of an illicit drug believed to be methamphetamine was found.
He was later charged with indecent assault upon a person under 16 years of age, common assault and possess prohibited drug.
The man was refused bail to appear at Downing Centre Local Court today.
