Woman Indecently Assaulted On Bali Flight, Man Charged

A man has been charged after a female passenger was indecently assaulted on a flight from Bali on Sunday.

A 31-year-old Croatian man will face a Sydney court on Tuesday, charged with an act of indecency without consent and common assault.

The incident occurred during a flight between Indonesia and Sydney.

AFP Airport Police Commander, Superintendent Peter Mullins, reminded passengers that even activities that occurred in the air could still be subject to Australian law.

“Passengers flying into Australia ought to feel safe knowing that any activity that occurs on a flight arriving into our country can be investigated by police,” Superintendent Mullins said.

“If something happens on board a flight, we encourage you to speak with the cabin crew who can then report the matter to police”.

The man received conditional bail and is scheduled to appear before Downing Centre Local Court on Tuesday.
