ACT Policing’s Criminal Investigations detectives from the Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Team, have arrested and charged a 22-year-old Macgregor man overnight for sexual assault.
Police will allege the man visited the victim’s address in North Canberra in the early hours of Thursday (January 13), and sexually assaulted her using a knife.
The victim, a 21-year-old woman, later attended the Calvary Hospital where she was treated for lacerations which required surgery.
The alleged offender will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning (January 15), charged with sexual assault in the second degree, breaching a protection order and wounding. Police will be strongly opposing bail.
