Queensland Police have arrested a 14-year-old boy following an investigation into multiple incidents of wilful exposure and indecent assault at Helensvale in recent weeks.

“It will be alleged that around 3pm on the December 28, a boy approached a 39-year-old woman in the pedestrian tunnel connecting two shopping complexes beneath the Gold Coast Highway, where he exposed himself before grabbing the woman’s breast,” Queensland Police said in a statement today.
