A man who advertised for a female flatmate and then indecently assaulted her the day she moved in had preyed on his young victim, a court heard yesterday.

Andrew Peter Scott, 46, of Anderson Road, Sunshine, pleaded guilty over the June 2003 attack, which occurred after a 20-year-old woman responded to a newspaper advertisement.

Scott also admitted convictions that included four similar assaults dating back to the 1970s on women he met after placing advertisements for flatmates and cleaners.
