Police have charged a man over the sexual assault of a teenage girl in Thirroul more than 20 years ago.
The girl, 14, was assaulted as she walked home alone from Thirroul Beach on January 30, 1993.
She reached Henley Road and was allegedly dragged into nearby bushland and sexually assaulted.
In 2009, Fairfield police received fresh information and began an investigation.
The investigation culminated yesterday with the arrest of a 48-year-old man who was charged with aggravated sexual assault and assaulting a child with intent to commit sexual intercourse.
The man was granted bail and will appear at Fairfield Local Court on November 18.
