The victim first became aware of the man when he entered the lift to her Southbank apartment.
When she stepped out at her floor and walked to her apartment, the man grabbed her from behind and covered her nose and mouth with one hand while holding her waist with the other.
He tried to pull her away but she managed to open her apartment door, at which points her housemates run to help.
The man fled the scene after the attack, which police called “absolutely terrifying” to Ross and John on 3AW this morning.
