Woman assaulted, robbed near train station

A 16-year-old boy has been charged with sexually assaulting and robbing a woman near a Perth train station after allegedly helping her when she fell.

Police said the incident occurred about 3.30pm yesterday and are seeking anyone with information.

The 19-year-old woman was at Warwick Train Station and fell over an escalator.

Police allege the 16-year-old helped the woman to her feet and, after walking with her, sexually assaulted her at an area not far from the station and also stole her SmartRider card.

The woman went back to the station for help and Transit Officers found a person matching the description given to them by the woman.

The 16-year-old from Doubleview has been charged with two counts of sexual penetration without consent and one count of stealing.

He has been refused bail and will appear in the Perth Children’s Court tomorrow.

Anyone who saw woman before or after the alleged offence and in particular anyone who saw her fall on the escalator at the Warwick Train Station is asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
