Southport 'groper' to face court

40-year-old charged with sexual assault

Southport 'groper' to face court

A man has been charged over that groping incident in Southport on the weekend.

A woman was allegedly assaulted by a man as she was returning home from a run on Sunday morning.

Footage from a CCTV camera outside the woman's apartment building shows a man repeatedly fondling her bottom.

Police have confirmed a 40-year-old Hope Island man has now been charged with two counts of sexual assault.

The second charge relates to a similar incident a year ago today, where another female jogger was allegedly groped on Oxley Drive at Hollywell on January 17, 2017.

The accused was allegedly recognised and arrested while at the Southport Police Station yesterday on another matter.

He is due to face court of February 6.
