Father says Brett Stewart's Penis Visible
February 4, 2010 - 7:23PM
Brett Stewart's pants were undone and his "old guy" was visible when a father confronted the Manly rugby league star about sex assault claims, a court has been told.
The father told police his 17-year-old daughter had pointed to a man in a suit, whom she said had just "hurt her".
He said he confronted the man, who denied touching his daughter, and pointed to a nearby townhouse where he said he lived and from where a woman came out.
"She looked towards his crotch and said 'why are your pants undone?' and pointed at his crotch," the father said.
The father told police the man was clearly drunk and he noticed the man's belt was open and his fly was undone.
"I could clearly see his old guy," he said, later describing what he saw as the top of the man's penis, still inside his pants.
The statements were included in the prosecution brief of evidence tendered at Stewart's committal hearing on Thursday at Sydney's Downing Centre Local Court.
Stewart, 24, is charged with having sexual intercourse, involving digital penetration, with the girl without her consent on the evening of March 6, 2009 at North Manly.
The full-back also is charged with assault with an act of indecency, namely that he "forced his tongue into her mouth".
Last April, Stewart's lawyer formally entered pleas of not guilty.
In her tendered statement, the girl said she was outside the Manly townhouse complex when a man pulled up in a taxi.
He asked her what she was doing and when she replied having a cigarette, he said "yuck".
The teenager said she could see he was drunk.
She said the man lent towards her face and "before I had time to move or react he put his tongue in my mouth".
She pushed him in the chest, he again put his tongue in her mouth and she again pushed him, the teenager told police.
The man immediately then put one of his hands under her shorts and knickers and placed at least one finger in her vagina, she said.
She managed to push him off and ran to tell her father, as she "started to cry and shake".
The father told police when he confronted the man, he yelled at him and denied touching his daughter.
"The guy kept saying something about 'don't you know who I am' and something about football," the father said.
"I didn't know what he was talking about because I don't follow football."
In one of her statements, the girl said: "I think about what happened all the time and it makes me feel ashamed and heaps sad.
"I didn't do anything to make him do this to me."
Deputy chief magistrate Paul Cloran adjourned the hearing to March 22.
