A Melbourne woman has been sexually attacked at the doorsteps of her own place.

It was about 7:30 in the evening when she returned home and searched for keys to unlock her front door. This was her regular routine work. However, June 23 was different.  While the Melbourne woman jiggled her keys, a man who entered her doorstep secretly sexually assaulted her at the very place.

News.com.au reported that the abuser, believed to be 20 years old, followed the 22-year-old Melbourne woman on the said date. He grabbed the victim while she was unlocking the door and was about to enter her Coburg home located in Wolseley Street. The man seemed prepared for every stage of his crime. As soon as he finished violating the woman, he ran towards Sydney Road following Wolseley Street.

Victoria Police department has started the manhunt. The victim described the physical features of the man to help the police further the case. She said he was 170-cm tall and had a medium–built physique. The woman said that he wore a blue jacket with white sleeves.

Police have appealed to the public for help. They have released CCTV footage of the assailant, so that anyone who knew him could inform the officers immediately. Anyone with information has been requested to contact Crime Stoppers and call 1800-333-000. People with details about the matter can also file a confidential report at www.crimestoppersvic.au.

There have been several sexual assaults recorded across Australia. However, being abused at a place where you feel that you are safest has raised a real concern. The incident depicted that a person might not be safe at his/her own house. There has been another event recorded in a Victorian home recently that yet again proved that even our home is unsafe.

Crocodiles, lizards, spiders and frogs were discovered in a Highton home close to Geelong. The event took place on Wednesday morning. Police were informed about the presence of the animals within the house by a security alarm. The Department of Environment, Water, Land and Planning and the RSPCA have indicated investigating the matter to find the reason behind it.
