A man has been charged after a woman he didn’t know was sexually assaulted in a horror attack at Albert Park Lake in Melbourne.
The incident unfolded while the woman was sitting along an embankment of the lake, 4km south of the CBD, at about 11.15pm.
Victoria Police believe the woman was approached by a 42-year-old man, who was unknown to her, before she was allegedly physically and sexually assaulted.
