An Australian woman who objected to being groped by Rolf Harris was told by the veteran entertainer “Yeah but it feels good, dunnit?”, it’s been alleged.
Harris on Monday was found guilty of indecently assaulting four girls in the UK between 1968 and 1986.
Another 15 women have claimed the former TV presenter harassed them in Britain, Australia, New Zealand and Malta dating back to the late 1960s.
Now another alleged victim can be added to the growing list.
West Australian Louise Anton has spoken publicly for the first time in the wake of Harris’s conviction in London.
She’s told Sky News UK that the entertainer indecently assaulted her in Australia in 2008 when the pair had their photo taken at a function.
“I know first-hand how quickly he can move and he knows exactly what he’s doing,” Ms Anton told Sky News.
“I could feel as plain as day his hand running down my back and it rested on the top of my bottom.
“And then he slid his fingers down in between, and did that several times, and I just couldn’t believe what was happening.”
Ms Anton, from Perth, said in true Australian fashion she said to Harris “Are you right?” and glared at him.
“He looked at me and said ‘Yeah but it feels good, dunnit?’ with this smirk on his face.
“Everything just started spinning and I just couldn’t believe this had happened.”
Another Australian, producer Paul Redman, told Sky News he worked with Harris on a number of shows and knew of his wandering hands.
He would reportedly warn female colleagues to stay clear of the star they nicknamed “the octopus”.
“I used to warn girls, ‘Just look, be careful’,” Mr Redman said.
“Don’t go for the cuddle at the end because he has been known to grope.”
The producer revealed that not many women believed him “and unfortunately to their detriment that’s why I know six girls who have been touched by Rolf”.
Harris, 84, will be sentenced on Friday at Southwark Crown Court over the indecent assaults committed between 1968 and 1986.
Justice Nigel Sweeney has warned the former star he’ll likely be going to jail. Each of the 12 charges carries a maximum penalty of two years.
