A man is due to be sentenced later this month over an attempted assault on an elderly woman in St Albans Park.

The County Court heard the now 26-year-old had been at a 21st party in August 2021, when he broke into an aged care home and tried to sexually assault a 90-year-old resident.

The court was told the woman was injured but managed to resist the attack and activate her personal duress alarm.
