Police appeal for public help

The mother and father of the girl were awoken by a noise in their Leichhardt home in the early hours of last Thursday morning.

They later told police they saw a man jump out the window of their daughter's bedroom.

Tests conducted on the girl were inconclusive.

The offender was last seen running in the area of Coleman St and Casey St, Leichhardt, about 3.45am on September 15.

He was wearing a black hooded jumper, dark blue jeans and a pair of black and white sneakers.

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
