Police arrest 18 year old man over alleged assault on young mother

There was no bail for an 18 year old man charged over the alleged sexual assault of a young mother, and the assault of her baby girl in their Wagga home.

Police say the 29 year old woman was at home with her eight month old daughter late Friday afternoon, when it's alleged a man forced entry to the unit, sexually assaulting her, and injuring the baby.

The woman alerted her husband, and the family attended the police station to report the matter, which led police to execute a search warrant at a Day Street address on Saturday, where they arrested the 18 year old man.

He appeared before Wagga Local Court and was refused bail, he's due to appear again on Wednesday, via video link.
