Police are looking for a man who “brazenly” sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl in Atwell Park on Thursday and have appealed for anyone with information to come forward.

Between 7.30pm and 8.30pm, a man driving a white Holden Commodore sedan picked up the teenager outside Harvest Lakes Shopping Centre.

He then drove the victim to Harmony Oval and, after the pair got out of the car and walked onto the oval, he sexually assaulted her.

Sexual Assault Squad Sergeant Kylie Duggan said the victim was “deeply distressed”.

“It’s a pretty brazen incident that happened,” she said.

“After the suspect left, the victim made her way to the scene and was assisted by a member of the public. It is obvious that she was very worried then.

“WA Police are fully supporting her and her family and trying to help her through this difficult time.”

She said police had recovered some CCTV footage of the white car in question and would be investigating further in the coming days.

The offender is described as fair-skinned, aged in his 20s, between 180 and 185 centimeters tall and of medium build.

Anyone who was near Harvest Lakes Shopping Center or Harmony Oval at the time of the incident and who has a dash cam or mobile phone that can help with the investigation, can upload the vision directly to the Investigators.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at www.crimestopperswa.com.au.
