Youth worker charged with indecently assaulting young girl in his care

A youth worker has been charged after he allegedly indecently assaulted a young girl in his care.

The 39-year-old was arrested at Oak Flats Police Station about 9.00pm last Saturday, after police launched an investigation after receiving reports a 15-year-old girl had been indecently assaulted.

The man has since been charged with two counts of aggravated act of indecency and two counts of aggravated indecent assault.


Police will allege in court the man indecently assaulted the girl and incited acts of indecency while the girl was in his care in the Shoalhaven Region.

He was granted bail and is due to appear at Port Kembla Local Court today.
