Court hears Beale's tone was “desperate” and “forceful” on night of alleged bathroom assault

Jarred Cross -

A woman alleged to have been sexually assaulted at a pub by Kurtley Beale has told a Sydney court the Wallabies star was acting "desperate" for sex on the night of the incident.

Beale is facing a NSW district court trial on one count of sexual intercourse without consent and two counts of sexual touching related to the alleged assault of the woman at a Bondi venue in late 2022.

The 35-year-old footballer has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

On Monday, Sydney's Downing Centre heard evidence from the alleged victim who was at the pub with her fiance, friends and Beale on the night of the incident.

According to reports, the 28-year-old woman was "shocked" and "surprised" after Beale touched her bottom for around one and a half seconds at the main bar of the venue before she acted to remove his hand.

She said she and Beale had not met prior to the night.

The court heard when the woman attempted to use the men's bathrooms later in the evening, she was approached and grabbed by Beale who told her he wanted to "f***" her multiple times.

The woman said Beale's tone was "desperate" and "forceful".

It was also alleged Beale barged in on her while she was seated in a cubicle stall, held his penis whilst gesturing with it and asked her to perform oral sex and assaulting her before she was eventually able to slip past him.

According to reports, the alleged victim repeatedly declined Beale, saying she didn't want to as well as commenting on his marriage and her relationship whilst maintaining a friendly tone in an effort not to agitate Beale.

According to the Australian, the woman was at one point told to keep her voice down by Beale.

There were also accounts of various interactions involving herself, Beale and others throughout the course of the evening.

The alleged victim recalled arriving at the pub after having a couple of drinks at a lunch and travelling to a friends house where she had more drinks and two "very small" lines of cocaine, via ABC.

She said she had witnessed Beale appearing "very intoxicated" on the evening of the incident.

Beale's barrister Margaret Cunneen SC last week said his client was innocent and that consent had been given in the incident involving the pair.

The trial is ongoing.
