Police have charged a 44-year-old man, alleging that he sexually assaulted a woman, after which he stole her mobile phone and fled the scene.
It is claimed the man approached a 52-year-old woman in the Todd Mall near Flynn Church (pictured) just after midnight on July 14, says Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Leith Phillips.
“Investigations led to the man’s arrest in Alice Springs on 24 July 2015.”
He has been charged with sexual intercourse without consent, aggravated assault and stealing.
He has been remanded in custody to appear in the Alice Springs Magistrate’s Court.
