Taxi driver charged with indecent assaults, NSW

Police have charged a taxi driver with several indecent assaults allegedly committed upon female passengers earlier this month in Gosford.

About 4.30am on Sunday 21 May 2017, three women hailed a taxi in Donnison Street, NSW Police say.

Police have been told that during the journey the driver inappropriately touched the leg of one 22-year-old woman.

During the trip the driver allegedly placed the hand of a 22-year-old woman in his lap and at the completion of the journey kissed a 21-year-old woman.

Police from Brisbane Water Local Area Command were informed and attended, obtaining details from the women.

Subsequently investigators were alerted to two other incidents allegedly involving a 21-year-old woman and a 22-year-old woman who were both kissed by the driver.

About 6.30am today a 65-year-old man was arrested in Green Point and taken to Gosford Police Station where he was later charged with assault with act of indecency (x 5).

The man was granted conditional bail to appear at Gosford Local Court on 13 June 2017.
