Man charged over alleged sexual assault of boys on church camps

A man has been charged with historical child sex offences relating to the alleged assault of young boys at Church of England Boys Society camps in Sydney’s south between 1965 and 1984.

The 73-year-old man was arrested at a home in Loftus about 8.00am on Thursday.

He was charged with seven counts of indecent assault upon a male, common assault, and sexual assault without consent.


Police say the charges come following investigations into “allegations surrounding the sexual assault of boys, who were members of the Church of England Boys Society between 1965 and 1984.”

“The allegations relate to a group leader, who allegedly committed the offences on camps in the Royal National Park and Blue Mountains.”

The man has been granted conditional bail to appear at the Downing Centre Local Court on 24 August 2017.
