A woman who was sitting on a train when it’s alleged a man tried to brush her breast, took a photo of him before filing a police report that night, a court has heard.
A woman faced a man she alleges indecently assaulted her on a train and left her “traumatised” at Burwood Local Court today.
The 20-year-old woman told the court she was sitting near a window on a train during the Friday night rush hour from St James station on August 17, 2018, when Jolly Rarichan Parambil Joseph occupied the free seat next to her a few minutes later.
She told the court she closed her eyes and was listening to music when the man tried to grope her during the busy train ride home more than once.
“I was really scared,” she testified. “I sat and I broke down as soon as I got in the car … with my brother.”
Jolly Rarichan Parambil Joseph has pleaded not guilty to the charge of assault with an act of indecencny. Picture: FacebookJoseph, 40, appeared to be asleep, she said, when he began leaning on her, and used his left elbow in a circular motion to get under her crossed arms and touch the side of her breast.
“I looked up and he had his eyes closed, so I’m assuming he must’ve … not intended to do that,” she said.
“(It was) not for too long, less than a minute.”
But what happened next gave her the impression he was feigning sleep and intended to indecently assault her, she said.
“He got his bag, put it on his left leg and my right leg, and started touching my thigh,” she said.
