Man Charged Over Indecent Assault Of 85-Year-Old Woman

A 41-year-old man has been charged after an 85-year-old woman was indecently assaulted in a retirement home in Central West NSW.

Police say the woman was asleep in her unit just before midnight on Monday when she woke up as she felt someone touching her.

Upon awakening, police say she challenged the man after she saw him 'committing an act of indecency'.

The man then allegedly left after the confrontation when the woman escorted him out of her unit.

She saw him looking through her bedroom window and contacted the emergency services, police said.

A man was later arrested at a home in Cowra on Tuesday, and a number of charges have been laid against him.
