Man arrested over sexual assault on teenage girls

Police have arrested a 33-year-old man from Launceston on suspicion of sexual assault.

Two teenage girls, both aged 15, were sat on a bench in Dockacre Road last Thursday afternoon when they were approached by a man, who sat down and started talking to them.

When they got up to leave, the man grabbed one of the girls and inappropriately touched her.

The arrested man has been released on police bail until May 10.
