Former foster carer charged with sexually assaulting young girl in his care

A former foster carer has been charged with sexually assaulting a teenage girl in his care in NSW.

The 60-year-old was arrested last Friday after Child Abuse Squad detectives launched an investigation after receiving reports a 14-year-old girl had been indecently assaulted.

Police will allege in court the man sexually and indecently assaulted the girl, and supplied her with cannabis, while she was in his care.


He has been charged with two counts of aggravated indecent assault, sexual intercourse with a person aged 14-16 years, and supply prohibited drug to a child.

Alternative care arrangements have since been made for the young girl.
