A man has been charged over an alleged sex attack on two women in North Fremantle last month.

Police say the two victims were at the intersection of Queen Victoria Street and Tydeman Road about 12.25am on September 20 when they were set upon by a 26-year-old South Lake man.

“Two women walked over the Fremantle traffic bridge and were near the intersection when it’s alleged the man approached them from behind and sexually assaulted them,” a police spokeswoman said.

The accused — from Perth’s southern suburbs — was charged with four counts of sexual penetration without consent.

He will appear in Perth Magistrates Court on Saturday.

The investigation is ongoing and Sex Assault Squad detectives are wanting to speak to witnesses.

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a report online.
