Brendan Rees

A man has come forward to Victoria Police after a sexual assault occurred at a shopping centre in the CBD on July 2.

The arrest of a 47-year-old man follows an incident at a shopping centre on the corner of La Trobe and Swanston streets on Sunday, July 2 about 3.30pm where a teenage girl was allegedly sexually assaulted.

The man handed himself in to a northern suburbs police station on July 13 following an appeal by Melbourne Sexual Offences and Child Abuse Investigation Team detectives, who also released an image of the man they believed could assist their enquires.

Police interviewed and released the Delahey man who is expected to be charge on summons.

Police thanked the media for their help in the public appeal. •
