Australia - Sydney man arrested for child sexual assaults two decades ago
Forensic link leads to arrest of Sydney man over child sexual assaults two decades ago
The 44-year-old Riverwood man was arrested after police were able to establish a clear DNA link between all five cases, which occurred between mid-1989 and September 1991.
The alleged offences were thoroughly investigated, but due to forensic and investigative limitations at the time, no one was ever charged.
The girls were aged from nine to 17 at the time of the alleged offences.
Police will allege the nine-year-old was grabbed from behind by an unknown man as she walked along a street in Bankstown, when she was taken to a nearby derelict property and allegedly sexually assault.
In 1990, a 12-year-old girl was allegedly abducted from a bike track in South Strathfield. She was taken to nearby bushland where the man threatened her with a knife and allegedly sexually assaulted her.
