Po­lice hunt sex at­tacker

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Health Communities -

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.
