A POLICE hunt is underway after a 12-year-old girl was sexually assaulted by two masked men at a park in Perth.

Police say the two men grabbed the girl in the park at Mackay Street in Bentley and assaulted her some time between 6pm and 11pm on Thursday.

Child abuse detectives want to speak with anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen the men, or have dashcam footage of the incident.

WA Police Minister Michelle Roberts said the incident was deeply concerning.

“Everyone does need to be vigilant. Know where your children are and take all safety precautions,” she said.

“Of course everyone should be able to walk the streets safely but unfortunately there are predators out there and my advice is take caution.

“Police will leave no stone unturned in this investigation, they’re taking it very seriously.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers 131 444.
