A Sunrise reporter was harassed and ‘improperly touched’ by a 13-year-old boy on his way to work.
Bianca Stone, a mother of two, said the teenager made the unwanted advance when she walked to a live cross location in the CBD of Brisbane on Monday at 4 AM.
‘I was approached, harassed and improperly touched by a teenager. The perpetrator was caught tonight. He is 14 and apologetic, “Mrs. Stone wrote on Twitter Friday.
“I really hope he learns from this. Thanks Queensland Police – excellent job. ”
Queensland police confirmed that the incident occurred, but said the perpetrator was actually 13 and the problem was resolved under the Youth Justice Act.

Mrs. Stone revealed that she was approached by the teenager on Twitter on Friday
Mrs. Stone received a flood of support from the followers involved on Twitter.
Fellow Sunrise reporter Jess Milward wrote: “This is great news. You don’t deserve that. Nobody deserves that. I’m glad he’ll be treated. ”
In response to comments, Mrs. Stone stated that she was 50 meters from her cameraman so he could do nothing.
“I could see him, but he couldn’t hear me. I’ve never been worried before, but I’ll be more aware now … It wasn’t what I needed for the Dreamworld Inquest, “she wrote.
Mrs. Stone hopes that the offending teenager will be “straight and narrow” now that the police have been caught by the police.
“Hopefully this young guy got scared of the police and changed his way of doing things … the QPS has done an incredible job of tracking him down,” she wrote.

Mrs. Stone’s incident comes after another Channel 7 reporter was also harassed in the CBD of Brisbane last week.
Jessica Mumme reported outside the Supreme Court in Brisbane on February 21 when a stranger made an extremely crude remark.
Mrs. Mumme threw the man in a tweet later that day for his rude behavior.
“Someone told her this afternoon in the middle of my live cross. Straight into my ear when I was talking about a murder verdict, “she wrote.
“I’m not really a whiner here. But this is exactly the kind of behavior that needs to change. ”
The stranger can then be heard shouting the vulgar sentence during the cross, but is not shown if overlay recordings were played.
