In a statement also released today police said there were numerous people in the vicinity of the bathroom, located at the centre of the bustling social hub along The Esplanade, at the same time the woman was allegedly abused.

They say the woman was befriended by two men on the night of Sunday March 14 before she was attacked in the public bathroom across the road from The Lookout between 8pm and 9pm.

The alleged assault took place just metres from the beachside precinct’s popular children’s playground, skate park and rock climbing wall.
