A 19-year-old girl was sexually exploited by a man who entered her Clayton house with an intention to steal money and valuables in April.
The girl woke up at 5:25 a.m. on April 9 when she felt the presence of an intruder in the house. Then she saw the man in her room. The man threatened her and demanded cash and valuables, which the girl could not produce. As a result, the man sexually exploited her in her own bedroom and fled from the room’s window.
“The man made threats and demanded cash before sexually assaulting her,” The Age quoted acting Sergeant Melissa Seach as saying. According to 9News, the suspect is still on the run and police officials are trying to track his location. They have also urged for public assistance in case anyone knew anything about the intruder.
Police have confirmed that they did not have any description or details about the appearance of the suspect as he did not come in contact with any other member of the family. He did not even steal anything. “A description of the offender is not known and he did not make contact with anyone else in the house or steal anything,” Victorian police statement released.
Meanwhile, sexual Crime Squad detectives have released an image of another man, who they think could lead the officers to the case proceedings. “There is no information to suggest this man is the suspect, however, detectives believe he may have valuable information that could progress the investigation,” Sergeant Seach said.
