Lankans charged at Ricky Martin event

Two Sri Lankan asylum seekers have been charged with indecent assaults on two women and a girl at a Ricky Martin event in Sydney last night, the Australian website reported.

The women aged 39 and 31 and a 14-year-old girl were in the crowd at Martin’s promotional appearance at Parramatta Westfield when they were allegedly attacked by the men who are on bridging visas and living in the community at Westmead.

Police swooped on the Sri Lankans, aged 47 and 20.

A police spokesman has confirmed the men were asylum seekers living in the community.

They were charged with indecent assault and common assault and granted conditional bail and will be required to report daily to Parramatta police station.

The men are due to appear in Parramatta Local Court on June 26.

It is the second time a Sri Lankan asylum seeker living in the community has allegedly committed indecent assault this year after a university student was allegedly set upon in her dorm.
