Alleged Narara abductor hospitalised


Court today for the man who allegedly dressed in a camouflage suit to abduct and sexually assault a 12-year-old schoolgirl in Narara back in May.

31 year old Woongarrah father of three Troy Johnson will appear via videolink, after he was refused bail at a closed hearing in Wyong local court yesterday.

Mr Johnson was charged with 13 sexual assault and kidnapping offences last Friday, when police stopped his vehicle at Lake Haven.

The charges relate to the 12 year old and another 11 year old girl - reportedly known to the man - who he allegedly abused between October last year and this April.



The 31 year old - named by NewsCorp as father of three Troy Johnson - has been refused bail to face Wyong local court tomorrow.

Detective Superintendent Linda Howlett has paid tribute to the bravery of the 12 year old victim of the May attack, saying she is now doing well and news of the arrest came as a relief.

It's also been revealed the man's been charged with sexual assault offences against an 11 year old girl between October and April of this year.

Det Supt Howlett is also not ruling out more victims coming forward now the man has been apprehended.
