AN angry father allegedly punched a man accused of drugging and sexually assaulting his teenage daughter.
Jeremy John Rowe, 44, is accused of striking up a conversation with a 13-year-old girl at a shopping centre in Thornlie, Perth on September 27.
It’s reported that they went to a skate park where it’s alleged that Rowe gave the girl cannabis before sexually assaulting her.
After the alleged attack, police found the girl unconscious and she was rushed to hospital, according to reports.
The victim’s father has been charged with indecent dealing offences after he allegedly assaulted Rowe on Sunday, the West Australian reports.
He allegedly tracked the 44-year-old down at a home construction site before punching him in the face.
Rowe reportedly fled the scene and was arrested on October 1 where he lives with his mother. He is unemployed and doesn’t have any children, according to reports.
The 44-year-old faced Armadale magistrates court on Friday. Rowe is charged with two counts of procuring a child to engage in sexual behaviour, two counts of indecently dealing with a child, one count of stupefying a child and one count of supplying cannabis.
He is due to appear in court on October 22.
