An alleged indecent assault of a teenage girl in Ermington yesterday, has police appealing for the assistance of the public.

A 16-year-old was walking through Cowells Lane Reserve on Wednesday, shortly after 9am, when she was approached by a man.

The girl attempted to leave the area; however, the man stopped the girl and allegedly indecently assaulted her by kissing her on the lips.

The man was seen walking towards Kissing Point Road a short time later when the girl also left the park.

A friend of the girl took her to a local police station to report the incident after the girl attended her high school.

The man is described as being of Caucasian appearance and aged in his 20s.  He is approximately 160cm tall and of a large build. He was last seen wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans.

Anyone who knows the identity of the man, or has any information that could assist police, is urged to contact Crime Stoppers ASAP.

  • The scary thing is this guy might not even think it was wrong.


  • this is scary but what do you do! this girl was 16! kids should try to stick in groups especially the females. that guy is a creep! the comment underneath brought up the point that this guy could have been watching/stalking this girl and that is terrifying to think that people would do that! keep your eyes open!


  • Such a scary and awful experience.


  • It is sad that many reserves are sheltered and undesirables take advantage of it.
    If the girl goes that way every day he may have been watching her previously.
    Areas with plenty of trees and shrubs are easy spots for such “a…..ls” to hide in and pounce out. People need to avoid those areas, even with dogs which may be a little deaf. There is a bikeway very close to where I previously lived. A guy grabbed a lady walking a small dog. The dog grabbed the man’s ankle and hung on until the man managed to shake it off. The guy would have needed a tetanus shot unless he had recently had one. He wouldn’t have been brave enough to tell the Dr. exactly how it happened.


  • What’s wrong with these idiots. It’s probably slim chances but hopefully they catch him.


  • She should have gone to the police immediately. Maybe they would have had more chances to catch him.


  • I’m so glad she went to the police. I hope they catch him
