A Sydney Trains paramedic charged with sexually touching women during medical examinations after they fell ill at a train station asked a court how police contacted alleged victims.
Police allege Peter John Thistlethwaite, 38, removed a patient’s underwear after she complained of abdominal pain and allegedly sexually touched another who had chest pains.
Both alleged female victims had become ill at Redfern train station in Sydney’s inner suburbs on July 26 last year.
Mr Thistlethwaite appeared before NSW Chief Magistrate Graeme Henson today with the court hearing the accused wanted “to know how witnesses were approached by police”.
The accused, who through his lawyer has “strongly denied” the allegations, is due to face a committal hearing next week into two charges of aggravated sexual touching.
A paramedic since 2017, Mr Thistlethwaite has since been dismissed by his employer.
Chief Magistrate Henson told the accused’s solicitor Timothy Scott the matter of how alleged complainants came forward was “a trial issue to be resolved between the Crown and the accused”.
Mr Thistlethwaite was a paramedic for a private contractor to Sydney Trains when he was working at Redfern station in July last year.
Two separate women – one complaining of chest pains, the other of stomach cramps – told police he allegedly sexually touched them while performing the medical examinations on the Thursday in question.
