Police have released railway station security camera footage of
a man they believe may be able to provide information that could
help solve a recent abduction attempt on a young woman.
Police said the victim got off a train at Bardwell Park at
11.30pm on Sunday.
The young woman told police that after leaving the station she
walked along Hartill-Law Avenue towards Earlwood shopping centre
and noticed that a man was following her.
"When she reached Girraween Park he grabbed her from behind and
attempted to drag her into the bushes," Ashfield detectives said in
a statement issued as part of their appeal for information from the
"The young woman was allegedly pushed to the ground, screaming
and struggling, before eventually breaking free."
Her attacker fled after the young woman, who suffered no serious
injuries, hailed a bus in Homer Street, and the driver contacted
Despite an extensive search of the area police were unable to
find the man.
A police spokesman said Ashfield detectives would like to speak
to the man pictured as they believed he might have information that
could help them. The man is described as being aged 17 to 18 years
old, of Pacific Islander appearance, of a short to medium build
with black curly hair and clean-shaven.
He was wearing a blue or red basketball-style singlet.
Police are investigating a series of attacks on women in
Sydney's inner west.
Ashfield detectives are looking at whether there is any link
between Sunday's attack and an earlier attack by two men who
sexually assaulted a 16-year-old as she took a short cut home at
dusk through Ashfield's historic cemetery from the railway station
on May 30.
Anyone with information is asked to call Ashfield Police on 9797
4099 or Crime Stoppers on 1 800 333 000.
