MAN CHARGED OVER ALLEGED SEXUAL ASSAULT OF COAST TEEN

A 21-year-old man has been charged over the alleged sexual assault of a teenage girl on the Central Coast.

Last month, detectives from the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad commenced an investigation, after receiving reports a teenage girl had been sexually assaulted earlier this year by a man known to her.

Police will allege the man had sex with the 14-year-old girl on a number of occasions at a Umina Beach home in May.

Numerous attempts had been made to locate the man, without success.

Just after 3pm on Thursday, officers from the Gosford Target Action Group arrested a 21-year-old man at a home in Woy Woy.

He’s been charged with two counts of sexual intercourse with person aged 14-16 to face Gosford Local Court today.
