Facing court

A 35-year-old Belmore, NSW, man was arrested yesterday (Friday, 11 September 2020) and will face court today on charges arising from a sexual assault in a brothel in Mitchell that morning.

About 5.55am the man entered the brothel and made a booking for services.

A short time later, police conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle that had been reported leaving the premises, and took the man into custody.

The man will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning charged with Sexual Assault Without Consent, Second Degree Sexual Assault and Fail to Appear after a Bail Undertaking.
