Queensland police officer accused of indecently touching female colleague blames 'workplace accident
A police officer accused of indecently touching a female colleague by grabbing her bottom during a training exercise says it was a “workplace accident” and he immediately apologised.
Jason Scott Renwick, 49, pleaded not guilty to one count of sexual assault over the alleged incident at a Brisbane training facility in February 2019.
The exercise on a staircase involved officers passing another officer in a cover position and tapping or squeezing them on the shoulder or thigh, crown prosecutor Brendan White earlier told the jury on Tuesday.
The final officer was also required to say “last man”.
White alleged Renwick “put his cupped hand on the underside of her right buttock and squeezed it” before saying “last man”.
