A 35-year-old man is facing charges arising from an alleged sexual assault at a Mitchell brothel.
The man, from Belmore, NSW, entered the brothel and made a booking for services at about 5.55am yesterday (September 11).
Police allege the man then sexually assaulted the woman he had engaged, and took her mobile phone before leaving the premises.
A short time later, police stopped his car and arrested him.
He faces the ACT Magistrates Court charged with sexual assault without consent, second-degree sexual assault and failing to appear after a bail undertaking.
