Police looking for witnesses after an alleged attempted rape at Noosa Heads


Investigating into an attempted rape at Noosa Head are ongoing and police are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

It is alleged a 34-year-old woman was walking down a thoroughfare between Noosa Parade and Hastings Street at about 5.20am last Sunday, when she was approached by a man.

It is further alleged he tried to talk to her before grabbing her and trying to push her to the ground.

The woman managed to get free and ran to a nearby business where she called police.

The man left the scene in a vehicle.

Police want to speak to the driver of a dual cab Amarok, which was captured on CCTV footage close to where the alleged assault occurred.

The car was seen breaking on Noosa Parade as the vehicle of the accused reversed away from the scene after the alleged assault.

Officers are also keen to speak with three women who spoke to the accused at a taxi rank on Noosa Driver at around 2.25am.

They also want to question two men at the same taxi rank two hours later, who were given a lift by a man in a vehicle matching the description of the accused.

A 22-year-old man faced the Maroochydore Magistrates Court in relation to the alleged attack yesterday.

He is charged with assault, intent to commit rape and deprivation of liberty.

Anyone with information is urged to contact police.
