The teenage girl has told police she was assaulted as she walked across a footbridge over Nepean Highway from St James Parade at around 3:30pm Monday last week.

A man approached her from behind and grabbed her by the waist before trying to drag her into nearby bushes.

The victim managed to break free, but the attacker grabbed her shoulder prompting her to punch the man in the face and flee.
