A schoolgirl fights off man in toilet block at Floraville
A girl has fought off a man who approached her inside a school toilet block near Newcastle, NSW.
The 12-year-old was confronted inside a toilet block at a school on Floraville Rd, Floraville, about 10.20am (AEDT) today, police said.
The man grabbed her arm, but she fought him off.
He ran into nearby bushland and the school was locked down as police searched the area.
The attacker was described as Caucasian, in his mid to late 30s, with black shoulder-length hair, a beer belly and with markings on his arms and legs.
He was wearing a red t-shirt with black writing, denim shorts and white sneakers.
Police urge anyone with information about the incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
Baby girl assaulted in pram
A BABY being pushed in a stroller by her mother has been indecently assaulted by an
elderly man in suburban Sydney,
Police say the nine-month-old girl was in a pram with her older brother being taken for
a walk along Gungah Bay Road at Oatley in Sydney's south when the incident happened about 1.30pm (AEST) yesterday.
"An older man approached the woman and engaged her in conversation before attempting to
unbuckle the baby from her pram," police said.
"The child's mother told the man to stop but he continued unsuccessfully trying to undue
the restraints. The man then touched the child."
The child was touched "indecently", a police spokeswoman said. The woman returned home
with her children before contacting police.
Detectives have seized several items for forensic examination and are now seeking the
man who is described as 65 to 70, about 183cm tall, slender and of white/European appearance.
He had short white hair and stubble.
At the time of the incident the man wore a white baseball cap with the words "black ice" on it,
and a short-sleeved polo shirt with a white, green and black pattern on the collar tucked into a pair of white shorts.
Attempted Abductors in CCTV Image
POLICE have released CCTV images of an attempted abduction of a 14-year-old girl by two men in Sydney's
inner-west, in which she managed to struggle free.
About 5.15pm on Wednesday September 3, the schoolgirl was walking along Holbeach Ave at Tempe when a white
van stopped next to her.
One of two men then attempted to pull the girl into the van.
Investigators hope people who regularly travel along the Princes Highway at Tempe will be able to provide
The girl managed to break free and run uninjured from the scene, and the van was last seen heading towards
the Princes Highway.
Detectives have seized CCTV taken from a nearby business which shows the white van at the intersection of
Holbeach Avenue and the Princes Highway.
It is described as being a white coloured van similar to a Toyota Hiace with yellow and black NSW number
plates and advertising on the side.
The driver of the van is described as being white/European appearance, 20 to 30 years of age, with blue
eyes and curly black hair.
His passenger is also described as being of white/European appearance, aged between 20 and 30 years and
was wearing a fluorescent work shirt.
Police are reminding parents to reinforce the “safe people, safe places” message and to be aware of where
their children are.
Police advise parents to:
Walk to and from school with their children, making sure it is the safest route to travel.
If possible, use busier roads and streets, or paths where other people are likely to be. Avoid back lanes
and short cuts through isolated areas.
Tell your children to avoid talking to people they don’t know, including people in cars that pull over to
the side of the road, and insist that they should never go anywhere or get into a car with someone they don’t know.
Always tell your children if someone other than you is going to pick them up from school.
Talk to your child about where they should go for help if they feel scared or something happens to them.
Safe places to go would include a shop, service station, police station or school.
Anyone who might have seen the van in the area, or who might recognise it and know the identity of its
occupants is urged to contact Newtown detectives on (02) 9550 8115 or contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Warrant Issued After Rape Accused Fails to Appear in Court
AN arrest warrant has been issued after a man accused of the rape of two teenage girls failed to make
a scheduled appearance in court today.
Nicholas Goldsack, 22, of Shepparton, was due to appear at Ballarat Magistrates' Court today.
Sergeant Bob Anderson of Ballarat police said Goldsack did not appear for a filing hearing this morning.
"Warrants are being issued,'' Sgt Anderson said.
He is facing five charges of rape and one of attempted rape relating to the assaults of two girls
aged 16 and 17 in Ballan and Sunshine last week.
Serial Sex Offender Still Walking Free
POLICE have urged children and young people in Sydney's west and northwest to be extra vigilant after forensic evidence
showed a serial sex offender is still walking the streets.
A man held in custody and charged with assaulting a number of young Sydney women has been released after forensic tests cleared him.
The 23-year-old man went to police on Saturday after seeing CCTV footage of himself on TV news.
One of the victims told police she had spotted her attacker at Blacktown railway station last week, and police circulated
CCTV footage of the man captured at the railway station.
He was charged with three counts of aggravated sexual assault, three counts of aggravated robbery, indecent assault and
stalking and intimidation linked to the assault of five women in Sydney's northwest between April and June. He faced
Parramatta Bail Court on Sunday and was refused bail.
Police could not confirm reports the man had claimed to be behind the attacks, but said they had "compelling evidence"
before the forensic tests were returned.
The new information prompted police to apply to the Supreme Court late last night for the man's release.
"The application was made after police received the results of ongoing forensic inquiries shortly before 6pm," police said.
"Another application will be made to the court over the next few days for the withdrawal of all charges."
A police spokeswoman was unable to confirm if the man's arrest and charging had stemmed from the victim mistaking his identity.
Police urged vulnerable people to be vigilant because the attacker is still free.
"Detectives are encouraging children and young people to avoid walking or travelling alone, especially if going to and
from school," police said.
"When possible, children and young people should also use busier roads and streets, or paths where other people are likely
to be, and avoid back lanes and short cuts through isolated areas."
"Alleged WA Child Sex Predator on The Run"
A WA man who tried to lure a teenager into a homosexual threesome by sending him pornographic images has failed to appear at a Supreme Court hearing.
ACT Chief Justice Terence Higgins issued a warrant for the arrest of Keith Shepheard, 49, after he failed to turn up to court yesterday.
Mr Shepheard was arrested in July last year along with a Sydney man.
Police allege the two men sent countless pornographic images and texts to the teenager from their mobile phones and over the internet.
They planned to travel to Canberra to have sex with the boy, police said.
The 49-year-old was charged with using a carriage service to groom an underage person for sex.
Mr Shepheard, formerly a Bunnings store employee in Perth, was extradited to the ACT in July last year.
He was granted bail in November and returned home.
At his last court appearance, he indicated he would plead guilty to the charge.
The two were caught after police took over the teenager's online identity.
