Siparia police investigating report of sexual assault

An 18-year-old woman has reported to police that she was sexually assaulted at gunpoint by a man known to her.

The victim said she went to the man’s Siparia home last weekend to purchase a cellular phone.

According to the report, when she arrived at the house, the man, who she has known since she was 11, showed her a firearm and then sexually assaulted her.

She was then allowed to leave the home.

She also told police that she saw the man again later in the day on High Street, Siparia, and that he raised his jersey, showing her he still had the firearm on him.  

The woman said she took it as a threat, and fearful for her life, she went and made a report to the police.
