The 21-year-old woman was shopping at a supermarket in the Burwood Rd complex last Tuesday afternoon when a man ap- proached her and helped her with her groceries. He then insisted on pushing the baby's pram to the woman's car. The baby became distressed and started to cry. The woman became concerned for her safety and that of her child and went into a parents' room to try to get help and feed her child. The man allegedly followed the woman into the parents' room and indecently assaulted her. He left when another man and a woman entered the room a short time later.
