A man is facing court today, accused of going on a sexual touching rampage across multiple train stations in Sydney, including allegedly dragging a teenage girl into a toilet cubicle.
Three separate teenage girls reported sexual touching incidents by the same man to police on Monday.
A 17-year-old girl was exiting a train at Central Station when a man allegedly sexually touched her.
The girl managed to escape and reported the incident to railway staff, who contacted police.
The man is also alleged to have pushed a 17-year-old girl into a toilet as she tried to exit about noon at Macquarie University Metro Railway Station.
The girl pushed the man away and reported the incident to police.
About 12.30pm, also at Macquarie University Station, the man is alleged to have dragged a different 17-year-old girl back into the toilets when she tried to exit.
The girl fled the toilet and contacted police, who attended a short time later.
Police will allege the man also boarded a train bound for Newcastle and allegedly approached a 21-year-old woman about 11.20am, where he stalked her.
The woman moved to an adjoining carriage before the man exited the train at Epping Railway Station. The woman remained on the train and reported the incident to police at Gosford Railway Station.
Ryde Police Area Command arrested the man on the platform of Macquarie University Metro Station.
He was taken to Ryde Police Station and transport police confirmed a link between all four incidents.
The 26-year-old man, of Koonawarra near Wollongong, was charged with three counts of sexually touching another person without consent, stalking/intimidating with intent to cause physical harm (personal), resisting a police officer in the execution of duty and possessing stolen goods in personal custody.
He was refused bail to appear before Hornsby Local Court today.
Inquiries are continuing.
