Detectives from the Westgate Sexual Offences and Child Abuse Investigation Team are seeking public assistance in connection with a sexual assault incident involving a teenager in Point Cook last year.
According to the information received by investigators, the 16-year-old victim was approached by a man near the intersection of Palmers and Dunnings roads on Friday, 9th December around 3 pm. The man forcibly grabbed her by the arm and proceeded to walk with her for approximately 10 minutes, during which he sexually assaulted her.
To aid in their investigation, the detectives have released several visuals of the suspect.
