Detectives are searching for two men after a teenager was indecently assaulted at Coffs Harbour.

The 14-year-old boy was confronted by a man inside a toilet cubicle at Salt Water Park on Harbour Drive just before 10am on Saturday 2 January 2016.

The man indecently assaulted the boy; however, he kicked him and fled the cubicle.

A second man then stood in the entrance and attempted to block the teen from leaving.

He managed to escape and police were alerted.

Detectives from the State Crime Command’s Child Abuse Squad are investigating the incident and are appealing for public assistance to identify and locate those involved.

The first man is described as being aged in his 50s, with tanned skin, chubby build and grey/white short hair.

The man is believed to have no teeth and has a tattoo of a number of words written on the inside of his left forearm.

The second man is believed to be aged in his 70s and appeared to have a bend in his back, causing him to walk hunched over.

Detectives are urging anyone who witnessed suspicious behaviour, or who has information that may assist, to come forward.

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 FREE or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/

  • I hate that I have had to teach my daughter to kick and scream and yell and bite if anyone tries to grab her. Oh and if you are talking to your kids about it – tell them to yell fire. If someone is screaming for help sadly these days they will be ignored, but everyone wants to come out and gawk at a fire….


  • Sickening. Thank goodness the boy was savvy enough to kick him and escape the two men. Maybe that is what we should be teaching our children….be more proactive. Hopefully there are cctvs near there and the boy can identify who these sick people are. There seems to be cctvs everywhere these days.


  • That poor boy. I hope the police catch them before someone else gets hurt


  • wow that is wrong! what the heck is wrong with them. hope they get caught.


  • OMG!! SICK. SICK. SICK!!! I hope they are caught and reprimanded!!


  • I’m glad the boy was able to escape. And I really hope they will get those two nasty men!!


  • Lke hd


  • Such a low and disgusting crime, to attack people in public toilets.


  • I hope these men come forward or someone know who they are and turn them in as NO kid should have to have this happen to them.
