Police appeal: Sexual assault, Fortitude Valley and Brisbane City

A 43-year-old Augustine Heights man has been charged with multiple sexual assault offences while allegedly posing as a ride share driver in Brisbane City and Fortitude Valley.

Between late September and mid-October this year, police will allege the man picked up young women in these areas and sexually assaulted them.

On one occasion, police will allege the man dropped a woman at her home address in North Brisbane where he followed her into her residence and assaulted her.

The man has been charged with six counts of sexual assault, one count of entering a dwelling and one count of deprivation of liberty and is due to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court today.

Detectives believe there may be more women who have been assaulted and are urging anyone who believes they may have been driven by the man to contact them urgently.
