Young girls traumatised after being approached, stalked by man waiting in female toilet cubicle

A man will appear in court today after approaching and intimidating two girls at a beach in the Tuggerah Lakes area.

About 2pm Sunday 25 October 2015, the two girls, aged 14 and 16, were at Soldiers Beach in Norah Head.

A man allegedly approached the girls, made sexual gestures towards them, and asked them to go home with him.


It will be alleged the man followed the girls, and continued asking them questions for a period of time.

Later in the afternoon, the girls entered the female toilets at the beach. They’ve told police the same man was inside one of the toilet cubicles.

Fearing for their safety, the girls ran from the toilets and spoke with some adults in the vicinity.

Police attended and began a search of the area.

A short time later, officers from the Police Transport Command arrested a man at a nearby bus stop.

The 41-year-old man was taken to Wyong Police Station, where he was charged with intimidation.

The man was refused bail, and is due to appear in Wyong Local Court today.

Police investigations into this matter are continuing.
