A teenager who groped eight women as they swam at one of Queensland's busiest beaches has been placed on two years' probation by a Gold Coast judge.

The Afghan-born 17-year-old, who cannot be identified because he committed the offences as a juvenile, spent two hours grabbing women, aged between 15 and 24 years, as he swam between the flags at Surfers Paradise Beach on January 16 last year.

The offending stopped when three of the victims approached the lifeguard on duty and he then notified police.

The teenager was initially charged as an adult because he had no birth records from Afghanistan.

He was sentenced today as a juvenile in the District Court at Southport after pleading guilty to nine charges of sexual assault and three charges of common assault


During sentencing, Judge Kent accepted the teenager grew up in difficult circumstances in Afghanistan and his father died in 2011

Someone should have held the little bastard underwater a few minutes.
