Music tutor charged with sexually abusing students

A MUSIC tutor will face court today, charged with sexually abusing two students in Sydney’s north-west.

The 54-year-old is accused of indecently and sexually assaulting two 15-year-old girls during tutoring lessons at Beecroft between April and November 2016.

Detectives from Ryde Police Area Command formed Strike Force Badarene in late 2018 to investigate the allegations and, following inquiries, arrested the man at his Beecroft home on Tuesday.


Investigators also executed a search warrant at the home and seized several items.

The music tutor has been charged with three counts of aggravated sexual assault – victim under authority of offender, and two counts of aggravated indecent assault – victim under authority of offender.

He was remanded in custody overnight and due to appear in Burwood Local Court today.

Investigations are continuing.
