Alberto Nicoletti Arrested
He was arrested after police released CCTV footage last month of two men they wanted to speak to about the alleged sexual assault of a woman in a public toilet in Scarborough in March.
Today, police told the Perth Magistrates Court the woman had met Mr Nicoletti and another man, Vincenzo Mineo, 36, in a bar. They insinuated to her they were in a relationship.
The court heard the woman agreed to go to the toilet with them after offering her cocaine, but once inside the cubicle, they sexually assaulted her.
Mr Nicoletti is accused of sexually assaulting another woman later on the same night in March after they went back to her house and she fell asleep.
The third alleged assault by Mr Nicoletti happened in December last year on the dance floor of a Northbridge nightclub.
Police arrested Mr Nicoletti, but police prosecutor Sergeant Mike O’Leary said he was released “pending further inquiries.”
The court heard there had been an investigation into Mr Nicoletti in 2016 over the alleged sexual assault of a woman in the carpark of his restaurant. Still, no action was taken at the time because the complainant said: “it was too much to deal with.”
Sergeant O’Leary said that woman had now ‘re-engaged” with police.
The other two alleged sexual assaults are said to have occurred in July this year — when Mr Nicoletti is accused of picking up a woman outside a nightclub after he falsely told her he was her Uber driver — and in July last year, when it is claimed he picked a woman up from the side of the road after she fell over.
Mr Nicoletti today applied for release on bail. Still, it was opposed by Sergeant O’Leary, who said the restaurateur was “a dangerous sexual predator” who posed “a significant risk to young females.”
