Attempted rape at ANU. Possibly part of a series

By 23 November, 2012 7

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an indecent assault which occurred last night (Thursday, November 22) in Acton.

At about 9.40pm, a 20-year-old woman was walking along Daley Road when a man approached her from behind, restraining her with both arms and pinned her against a wall. The man attempted to indecently assault the woman.

The woman managed to break free from the man’s grip and ran away.

The offender is described as Caucasian in appearance, aged in his late teens to early 20s, about 173cm (5’ 8”) tall, with an average build. He was wearing a striped rugby jersey, grey-coloured tracksuit pants and a khaki, army-style flat hat.

ACT Policing wishes to alert the public that there were two indecent assaults which occurred in the Acton area last month, in which victims provided a similar description to this offender.

Police are urging members of the public residing in or visiting the Acton area to be aware of their safety and surroundings.

Anyone who may have seen a man matching this description or who may have information which could assist the investigation are asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

I think saw this guy last night when I was driving through the ANU at about 8:15pm past the Curtin Medical School. (calling Crimestoppers) I actually thought he looked mentally ill and locked my car doors as I slowed to go over the speed bump/pedestrian crossing.

ANU, ANUSA, Woroni – all silent. Haven’t put out the word about this.

Only way to get these creeps is to make sure there are eyes everywhere, with his description in mind.
