Charges – Unlawful Entries


Strike Force Trident have arrested a 17-year-old male following two separate unlawful entries over the weekend.

The male entered a Malak residence through an unlocked door and removed his clothing around 8:00am on Saturday 14 September. He touched a victim on the leg which resulted in her calling out and the offender fleeing the scene.

The male then entered another residence on the same street a short time later. The male startled two occupants who called out which again caused the male to flee. Occupants from the first residence observed the offender hiding in some bushes on the street and advised him to collect his clothes and wait for police. Police apprehended the male a short time after.

The offender was charged with:

  • 2x Unlawful Entry
  • 1x Aggravated Assault
  • 1 Offensive Behaviour In A Dwelling
