A man has been charged over two incidents where women were allegedly sexually assaulted in Elwood in 2012.

Victoria Police said on Wednesday they’d arrested a 31-year-old Albanvale man.

He has subsequently been charged with a range of offences including rape, false imprisonment, kidnapping, common law exposure and assault.

A 47-year-old woman was walking along a footpath on the canal between Beach Road and Addison Street on February 24, before being sexually assaulted.

The second incident occurred on October 20, where a then 32-year-old woman was walking along the Bay Trail before being sexually assaulted.

Police are still investigating whether there are any links to any other similar incidents in the Elwood/Bayside area or the western suburbs.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit www.crimestoppers.com.au
