An 11-year-old boy was sexually assaulted in a cinema toilet in Melbourne’s north-east while his mother waited outside.
The brazen attack occurred around 4:30pm on Sunday at Main Street, Greensborough, when the boy and his mother left mid-film so he could go to the bathroom.
After the boy entered the toilet, a strange man approached him at the urinal and assaulted him, while his mother waited outside, Fairfax Media reports.
The attacker – believed to be aged between 40 and 60 and wearing a hooded jumper – fled with his pants around his ankles.
The boy ran out to his mother and raised the alarm.
