Man to face court over sexually assaulting three young girls

A man will appear in court today after being extradited from Western Australia, charged over historical child sexual assault offences in New South Wales.

Police will allege between July 1982 and November 1984, in the suburbs of Stanmore and Alexandria, the man sexually abused a girl he was the sole carer of, while she was aged between six and nine years.

During the course of the investigation two women, who were allegedly sexually assaulted while aged 11 and 12 at the time, have come forward.

It’s believed the man left New South Wales in 1984.

On Monday 29 June 2015, investigations by Marrickville Detectives, assisted by Western Australia Police, led to the arrest of a 72-year-old man at his home in Freemantle, on an outstanding warrant.

He was extradited to New South Wales yesterday (Wednesday 1 July 2015), and charged with 11 counts of carnally knowing girl under 10, two counts of indecent assault of person under 16, and five counts of act of indecency with person under 16. These charges relate to the girl aged under ten at the time.

Additional charges have been laid, regarding the two further victims who came forward, which include five counts of act of indecency with person under 16, six counts of indecent assault of person under 16, carnally knowing girl between 10 and 16, sexual intercourse without consent, and attempt carnal knowledge of girl under 16.

The man has been refused bail, to appear before Parramatta Local Court today (Thursday 2 July 2015).
