Victim Sickened By Serial Groper Attack
DAYS after being attacked, Molly is still sickened by
what the Wynnum serial fondler did to her.
Since her assault on Saturday, the man, who is believed to be
responsible for eight attacks on women in the Brisbane eastern
bayside suburb over the past two months, has gone underground.
Police believe he is likely to attack again.
Molly, 21, said he needed to be caught immediately.
"He shouldn't be allowed to get away
with it," she said. "It's just sick."
Miss Brown became the eighth victim to be attacked by the
man as she walked along the Waterloo Esplanade with her border collie on Saturday, about 4.15pm.
She was aware somebody was behind her but thought
he wanted to overtake her.
"But as I was rounding a corner a person came up and
grabbed me around the chest and squeezed my . . . at the front," Molly said.
"I screamed, said lots of swear words and elbowed them.
Then they let go and ran away.
"I just stood there and watched him because I couldn't
"He kept looking back at me, just watching me and seeing
if I was going to run after him."
Molly said that while she was physically fine, she was
really concerned for the other women, especially the
elderly, whom the man had also attacked.
At 21, she is 67 years younger than the man's oldest
He is believed to have attacked two women in their 80s
and has grabbed most from behind. Some he has just robbed.
"I'm young and fit and could have punched him off, but an
88-year-old might not be as strong," Molly said. "He needs to be caught."
Police are appealing for anyone who might have seen the
man who is described as being in his late teens, of a
slim build, about 173cm tall, with dark brown hair and a fair complexion.
Detectives are also still hunting the man who sexually
assaulted a girl, 6, during a bush dance at Wynnum North
Primary School on Saturday night.
Acting Detective Senior Sergeant Damien Watson said
police were looking through family video footage from the night.
He said the girl had given an updated description of
her attacker: in his 40s, taller than 170cm, wearing
glasses with a dark coloured frame that might have been
blue or purple, a watch with a brown band on his right
hand, grey coloured jeans and a blue and black chequered jacket.
The man was also wearing a distinctive earring in one
ear – a sleeper that might have had a diamante hanging on it.
