An Australian man has been charged with sexually assaulting a 7-year-old girl over three years.
The 29-year-old was arrested in WA last week after detectives from the Kimberley Joint Response Team launched an investigation into the reported indecent assaults.
Detectives say it’s alleged the man sexually assaulted the girl, who was known to him, between 2004 and 2007.

He is due to appear before the Broome Magistrates Court on 3 October.
