A man has been charged over the alleged sexual assault of a young boy in Sydney’s west last year.
Earlier this month, detectives from the State Crime Command’s Child Abuse Squad commenced an investigation following reports a young boy had been sexually assaulted.
Following extensive inquiries, a 64-year-old man was arrested at a home unit at Westmead about 9.45am yesterday (Monday 27 June 2016).
The man was taken to Parramatta Police Station and charged with sexual intercourse with a child under 10.
Police will allege the young boy was sexually assaulted while his parents slept when staying at the man’s home in December 2015.
He was refused bail and appeared at Parramatta Local Court yesterday, where he was formally refused bail to reappear at the same court on Thursday 25 August 2016.
Inquiries are continuing.
