Police investigate child sexual assaults from 1980s and 1990s

ACT Policing’s Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Team is seeking information about a series of sexual assaults committed against children under the age of 16 during the 1980s and 1990s.

Police are particularly interested in offences allegedly committed by a Canberra man and two men from NSW who brought boys to two houses in Wanniassa, where the three men performed indecent acts against the children.

Police believe it is likely that children from the ACT and NSW were abused by the same group.

Anyone who has information about these incidents or who may have been a victim is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website, quoting incident number 6218997. Information can be provided anonymously.

While this appeal for information relates to specific offences currently under investigation, anyone with information about any other sexual assaults committed against children in the ACT is also urged to contact police.
