Man indecently assaults child in Florey underpass

Share Canberra's trusted news:

A MAN from Ngunnawal allegedly indecently assaulted a nine-year-old girl in the underpass of Ratcliffe Crescent, near Florey shops. 

The man, a 32-year-old, reportedly approached and then indecently assaulted the girl at about 11.30am on March 31.

He has been charged with one act of indecency on a person under the age of 10 years. He will face this charge at the ACT Magistrates Court.

With ACT school holidays starting today (July 6), police encourage parents and guardians to make sure children understand how to keep themselves safe and to teach children about stranger safety. Information on ways to help children to stay safe is available on the Constable Kenny Koala website.

If you become aware of an incident, or notice anyone acting suspiciously around a child, contact police immediately on 131 444, or in the case of an emergency call 000.
