Man accused of bottom-fondling

A 42-year-old Cromwell man faces two indecent assault charges arising from the Gibbston Summer Concert on Saturday.

The man allegedly touched the bottoms of two women and kissed them. Police officers saw the man touch one of the women and saw her slap his hand away.

Constable Sean Drader, of Queenstown, said yesterday the woman told officers the man had committed the act three times earlier.

At least two more women saw police talking to the man and laid complaints.

The man will appear in the Queenstown District Court soon.
