The daughter of a woman allegedly sexually assaulted by a Wangaratta policeman says she saw the officer follow her mum into her bedroom and thought it was "weird".
The Wodonga County Court heard the alleged victim had told her daughter what had happened during the incident at their home on February 7, 2018.
Luke Hawking has pleaded not guilty to two counts of sexual assault and rape after allegedly twice touching the woman's breast and rubbing her vagina while in her bedroom.
The woman's daughter gave evidence on Friday.
Jurors were shown an interview given by the girl a week after the alleged offences.
In the interview, the girl said her mother had confided in her.
"I just hugged her and asked if she was alright, and said she had to say something," she said.
"I thought that if we said something it wouldn't happen to anyone else.
"She was vulnerable and he did that to her and it was gross."
The alleged victim had told her daughter what happened after the alleged incident, but she didn't want to go into detail.

"She wouldn't go into detail."
Four officers had attended the home following a reported break-in and assault by the woman's ex-partner.
Her daughter said multiple times she thought it was "weird" that Hawking had followed her mother into her room.
"I wasn't really questioning it because I thought he knows what he is doing," she said.
The woman's other daughter said her mum had gone to her home on the morning of the alleged incident.
"She was upset, erratic, acting like obviously something had happened that was very wrong," she said.
The older daughter said her mum told her a policeman had touched her inappropriately.
The trial will continue on Monday and evidence could conclude by next week.
