ACT Policing have arrested a 24-year-old Casey man following reports of a number of indecent assaults.

At approximately 8.45am on 1 November 2016, a female victim was travelling on an ACTION bus between Woden and the city when she was indecently assaulted by a male.

Further reports received by police, indicated that there were other victims on bus routes between Gungahlin and Belconnen town centres during November and December.

Whilst the male has been apprehended and some victims have come forward, police believe there may be other people who have information, and urge them to come forward and speak to police. Please contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via https://act.crimestoppers.com.au and quote reference number 6034381. Information can be provided anonymously.

The 24-year-old male has been charged with four counts of act of indecency without consent and one count of act of indecency on person under 16 years and will face the ACT Magistrates court today (Friday, 9 December 2016).

Police will oppose bail.

ACT Policing would like to thank Transport Canberra and ACTION staff for their quick and thorough cooperation and members of the public that provided assistance. This cooperation greatly assists in the identification and apprehension of offenders.
