Police Searching For Information Over Stalking And Sexual Assault At Melbourne Shopping Centre

Victorian Police are looking for anyone who may have witnessed an alleged stalking and sexual assault in a Melbourne shopping centre last month.

A statement posted on the Vic Police News site says:

Greater Dandenong Sexual Offences and Child Abuse Investigation Team detectives are appealing for witnesses following an alleged stalking and sexual assault in Narre Warren last month.

Investigators have been told a 13-year-old girl and a 12-year old girl were at a venue in Fountain Gate Shopping Centre searching for a missing bag on 26 November about 1.30pm.

It is alleged an unknown man began following the 13-year-old around the venue.

The girl ran off and the man has then approached the 12-year-old girl and sexually assaulted her before walking away.

Police have released CCTV and images of a man they believe may be able to assist with their enquiries.

The man is perceived to be of South American appearance, aged in his 30s with a medium build, tanned skin, unshaven and has a lazy eye.

He was wearing a red and white hat, dark-coloured hoodie with white writing on the front, dark-coloured pants and runners.

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report to www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
