Guitarist with Melbourne band Alpine charged with sex assault of teen

The guitarist of Melbourne indie pop band Alpine allegedly fled to Brisbane “to avoid apprehension” earlier this year after he was linked to the alleged sexual assault of a teenager.

Christian O’Brien was charged with sexual assault earlier this year after a public appeal for information in January about an incident which allegedly occurred on Little Bourke Street in Melbourne’s CBD.

Court documents released during a Melbourne Magistrates Court hearing on Monday reveal Mr O’Brien allegedly “intentionally sexually touched the complainant, a child under the age of 16, in circumstances where the touching was contrary to community standards of acceptable conduct”.

The incident allegedly occurred on August 2 last year.

In early January, police appealed for information, releasing a picture of a man they wanted to speak to.
