The little girl was threatened with a knife by a man who sexually assaulted her. She was then forced into a red car, believed to be a Commodore sedan and driven to bushland

There she was sexually assaulted for several hours before being released at Kotara Railway Station just before 2.15 p.m. On Tuesday night police established a crime scene in bushland beside Belair Public School.

Around seven police cars attended the area and cordoned off a section of bush between the school and an amenities block at Hudson Park. An NSW Ambulance spokesperson said paramedics had been called to an Adamstown Heights address just before 2.30 p.m.

The girl was transported to John Hunter Hospital. Police have appealed for public information to further investigations into the incident.

“It’s quite a worrying crime committed in broad daylight to a young person, a very brave young girl ... while she was on her way to school.”

He has wrinkles on the forehead and around his mouth, brown stains on his teeth, dark messy hair and was wearing a black and grey hoodie with a distinctive blue panel on the front.
