Police will allege the man committed an act of indecency on a female student at a university residence about 6.30am Saturday (28 September) and then stole several items. He allegedly attempted to use a credit card stolen from the victim later that day.

On Sunday the man was located in Curtin, in what police will allege was a stolen motor vehicle and in possession of a substance believed to be methylamphetamine. He was arrested and subsequent searches located numerous stolen items.

The man will face charges including committing an act of indecency without consent, driving a motor vehicle without consent, unlicenced driving, burglary, theft and drug possession.

Police will oppose bail.
