Police have charged a man over a terrifying sex attack on a young woman in Burswood at the weekend.
Sex assault squad detectives arrested the man on Wednesday after the woman was attacked in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Police claim the woman was riding her e-scooter about 1.10am when she approached the pedestrian underpass tunnel under the Causeway.
“It will be alleged a man pushed the woman off the E-scooter and then indecently assaulted her and stole her mobile phone,” a police spokesman said.
As part of the investigation sex assault squad detectives executed a search warrant at a home in Wilson and arrested a 19-year-old man.
The teenager has been charged with aggravated indecent assault, aggravated robbery and attempted aggravated robbery.
He was refused bail and is due to appear in Perth Magistrates Court on Thursday.
