Police Link Drummoyne And Sylvania In Aggravated Indecent Assault
Police are warning the public and asking for their assistance in locating a man allegedly responsible for two aggravated indecent assaults on Saturday (12 December).
About 8.30pm, a mother and her two children entered a fast food restaurant on Victoria Road, Drummoyne to have dinner. During dinner, the mother left the table and walked only metres away to the counter to order dessert.
When she was gone a man grabbed the 4-year-old boys face and gave him a kiss on the lips and then handed him a lolly pop from his pocket.
The man fled the Drummoyne restaurant in a small white hatchback vehicle, believed to be a Hyundai Getz or similar, with yellow and black number plates.
The second incident occurred about 10.20pm at a fast food restaurant on Princes Highway, Sylvania. A woman with her daughter and son entered the store and all three went to the toilet.
Whilst in the men’s toilet the 11-year-old alleges a man touched him inappropriately and kissed him on the mouth. The man threatened the boy not to tell anyone before running from the store.
The 11-year-old informed his mother and the store immediately. Police were later contacted by the family.
CCTV footage of both incidents show a man aged between 45-55, about 170cm tall with distinct square rim glasses, wearing a blue baseball hat, blue shirt and pants and carrying a shoulder bag.
Police have today issued footage (Drummoyne) and a still photograph (Sylvania) of a man who they believe can assist with inquiries. Police believe the images depict the same man and are urging anyone with any information to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
