A 39-year-old man accused of indecently assaulting a 19-year-old woman on a train in Sydney last year has been arrested.
Police have praised the quick thinking 19-year-old, who managed to take a photograph of her alleged attacker after the incident in August. It was subsequently used in a public appeal for information on Wednesday.
The man was later arrested outside a home in Auburn, just hours after police appealed to the public.
He was charged with assault with act of indecency.
Commander of the Police Transport Command’s North West Sector, Detective Superintendent Brad Monk, said the woman’s efforts significantly aided the investigation.
“I want to acknowledge the victim’s brave and clever act in discreetly capturing an image of her alleged attacker, ultimately leading to yesterday’s arrest," Detective Superintendent Brad Monk said.
“I encourage anyone who may have been a victim of crime on our transport network to report the incident, so police can act.”
The 39-year-old will appear in court next month.
