McKellar man charged with indecent act on a child

Charged

A 19-year-old McKellar man has been charged with an act of indecency against a 14-year-old girl and supplying her with cannabis. 

In April police received a report regarding an alleged act of indecency committed by a 19-year-old man on a 14-year-old girl while in a vehicle.   

The subsequent investigation identified the 19-year-old who police will allege solicited the sexual act and supplied the child with cannabis. 

On Sunday (8 May 2022) police searched and seized a silver BMW sedan while attempting to locate the 19-year-old.   

Yesterday afternoon (Monday 9 May 2022), the man presented himself to Belconnen Police Station where he was arrested and charged with supplying cannabis to a child, breaching his good behavior bond and an act of indecency on a child.  

He is scheduled to appear in the ACT Magistrates Court today (Tuesday 10 May 2022).  

Police believe there may be other victims who have had interactions with the man and his silver BMW sedan. Any victim of assaults or indecent acts allegedly committed by this man are urged to contact police on 131 444 and reference PROMIS case number 7083622. 

If you or someone you know has been the victim of sexual violence, please contact ACT Policing as soon as possible on 131444, by attending a Police Station or reporting historical matters online.
