Vic police hunt men over 2010 sex assault

·1-min read

Police hope two distinctive tattoos will help them identify a man who plied two girls, aged 12 and 13, with alcohol before sexually abusing them in Melbourne more than a decade ago.

The man is one of two accused of assaulting the girls in St Kilda on the night of December 14, 2010. The incident was recently reported to Victoria Police.

The first man is described as Caucasian with tanned skin, a muscular build and an accent.

He was heavily tattooed with the word "family" on his neck, along with a diamond etched on his hand.

The second man was tanned and skinny, and was believed to have worked at a licensed premises.

Police say the tattooed man picked up the young girls, who were staying with family at a now-defunct motel on Carlisle Street.

Shortly after 9pm, the girls left the motel and walked towards The Esplanade.

They were approached by the man and agreed to enter his vehicle, where they were given alcohol.

They were later driven to an unknown licensed premises before being taken to an unknown residence, where the second man arrived.

The girls were assaulted by both men and dropped off near Luna Park the following morning.

Police are urging anyone who may have lived or worked in the St Kilda area about 2010 and 2011 and who may recall someone with these tattoos and details to come forward.
