Around 4.20pm a 13-year-old girl was jogging around Yerrabi Ponds, near the skate park in Gungahlin.

The male offender is described as between 18-20 years old, tall, clean shaven with short black curly hair and tanned skin. He was wearing a black tracksuit and black Adidas shoes (with three white stripes).
