MAN BEHIND BARS FOR ALLEGED HORRIFIC CRIME AGAINST SCHOOL GIRL

The bravery of a young girl – and the power of a community have led to the arrest of a man, accused of an unspeakable crime.

Among 200 phone calls to police – a tip that led to the alleged sex predator.

But it was the 11 year old victim – who had the courage to report the crime, and the strength to relive it – that means a Newcastle community can sleep a little easier tonight.

NOTE: Please be advised the identity of the accused has been suppressed by order of a court. Any comments or posts which identify or lead to the identification of the accused may impact court proceedings.
