Fortune Teller Charged Over Sexual Assault Of Teenage Girl

A man who claims to be a fortune teller will face court today charged over the alleged sexual assault of a young girl in Sydney's south-west.

Authorities commenced an investigation on Sunday after reports a 14-year-old-girl had been assaulted by a man earlier in the day.

After speaking with a 31-year-old man at a business on Macquarie St, Liverpool, investigators executed a crime scene warrant.

On Monday, the Australian Federal Police alerted investigators a man had attempted to board a plane to Singapore from Sydney International Airport.

The man, who is an Indian National, was arrested and charged with two counts of intentionally sexually touching a child under the age of 16, and three counts of aggravated sexual assault.

Police allege he approached the girl and offered her free fortune telling services before sexually assaulting her in the business premises.

He was refused bail and is set to appear at Central Local Court on Tuesday.
