Investigators have been told a 19-year-old woman was on a northbound tram on Plenty Road when a man boarded the tram just before 6pm on 10 July.

The victim got off the tram in Kingsbury and walked down a neighbouring street where she was followed by the same male at a close distance for a number of minutes.

The man eventually stopped following the woman and was last seen walking in the direction of Plenty Road.

Investigators have released CCTV of a man in the hope that he can assist with their inquiries.
