Man to face additional sexual assault charges

A 20-year-old Acton man will face charges following an alleged sexual assault in May 2021.

Last month, the man appeared before the ACT Magistrates Court charged with two counts of sexual intercourse without consent for an alleged separate incident in April 2021.

Another person later contacted ACT Policing’s Criminal Investigations – Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Team to report an alleged sexual assault by the same man.

Detectives investigated and, as a result of evidence collected, have laid two additional charges – one count of sexual intercourse without consent and one count of act of indecency without consent.

The man is scheduled to appear in the ACT Magistrates Court today (Tuesday, 12 October 2021). The maximum penalty for sexual intercourse without consent is 12 years imprisonment.

If you have been the victim of sexual violence, please contact ACT Policing as soon as possible on 131444 or 000. If your report relates to this matter, please quote reference 6904274.
