Home News Man gets bail for allegedly grabbing postwoman’s buttocks
A 33-year-old man who allegedly grabbed a postwoman’s buttocks when she went to his yard to deliver mail was on Friday released on $30,000 bail after being slapped with a sexual assault charge. Jason Yarris, a labourer of Bent Street, Werk-en-Rust, Georgetown, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Police stated that on September 24, 2020, at Bent Street, Werk-en-Rust, Georgetown, he committed a sexual assault by touching the woman’s buttocks without her consent. Yarris was instructed to return to court later this month.
According to information received, on the day in question, the postwoman was riding her bicycle in the vicinity of Bent and John Streets, Werk-en-Rust, Georgetown, delivering mail.
However, as the woman entered Yarris’ yard, he approached her and pulled her bicycle. The woman pulled the bicycle from Yarris, and in turn, he grabbed her butt and walked away.
The woman continued her duties. While doing so, Yarris attempted to grab her breasts. Out of fear, she screamed and neighbours went to her rescue.
She later made a report to the Police and based on investigations, Yarris was arrested and charged for the offence.
