Sydney man accused of child grooming offences

A Western Sydney man has been arrested, accused of grooming a child online.

In March 2017, strike force officers struck up a conversation with the man.

Police will allege in court the man believed he was speaking to a 15-year-old boy and engaged in numerous sexually-explicit conversations with the child.


About 9.15am on Thursday 11 May 2017, the 38-year-old man was arrested by strike force detectives at a home in Moorebank.

Detectives executed a search warrant at the home, where they seized a computer and electronic storage devices.

The man was taken to Liverpool Police Station and charged with using a carriage service to groom persons under 16, and using a carriage service to transmit indecent communication to child under 16.

He was granted strict conditional bail to appear at Liverpool Local Court on Tuesday May 31.
