A MOTHER has been indecently assaulted while feeding her five-week-old baby at a shopping centre changing room in Sydney's west.
A 70-year-old man helped the 21-year-old woman with her shopping before following her to a baby changing room at a large shopping complex on Burwood Road, Burwood about 2.30pm (AEST) on Tuesday, police said.
"It will be alleged the woman became concerned for her and her baby's safety and went into a baby change room to obtain assistance and to feed her child, as it was the baby's normal feeding time," NSW police said.
"The man allegedly followed the woman into the change room, where she was indecently assaulted."
A man and a woman entered the change room a short time later and the elderly man immediately left, police said.
A man has been granted conditional bail and is due to appear at Burwood Local Court on July 9.
Officers have appealed to the man and woman who entered the change room to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
