Police hunt sex attacker
POLICE gathered near a toilet block on Balbuk Way in Rivervale last Thursday afternoon in a bid to seek public information about a sexual assault.
The Sex Assault Squad brought the mobile policing facility to the site, which is popular with water-skiers, because they wanted to speak to anyone who was in the vicinity at the time.
Police say a woman was changing in a cubicle of the women’s toilets about 3.30pm on February 12 when a man believed to be unknown to the 32year-old forced his way into the cubicle, sexually assaulted her and ran off with her purse.
The man is described as being 30-45 years of age, with fair skin, about 170cm tall with a prominent stomach.
He has messy curly blonde hair and had an unkempt appearance, was unshaven with a goatee beard.
The man was wearing a black T-shirt and light coloured knee-length shorts.
Police would like to speak with anyone who was in the vicinity at the time who may have seen the man or can assist in identifying him.
Anyone with any information about the incident should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
