Greystanes man on child sex charges

A 66-year-old maths tutor was arrested at his Greystanes home today and charged with child sex offences.

Detectives from the State Crime Command’s Child Abuse Squad arrested the man about 8.30am today (Tuesday) before he was taken to Merrylands police station and charged with two counts of aggravated sexual intercourse with a child under 10 years (under authority); two counts of aggravated indecent assault (victim under 16 years); and four counts of aggravated act of indecency (victim under 16 years).

Refused bail, the man was scheduled to appear in court today.

Today’s charges are in addition to a number of similar charges preferred against the man in August.

In court, detectives alleged the man sexually assaulted five children (two boys and three girls), all of whom were clients of his mathematics tutoring business.

The offences are alleged to have occurred at various locations throughout Sydney between 2007 and 2014; the ages of the victims at the time of the offences ranged between 5 and 7 years old.

The squad works in partnership with the Department of Family and Community Services and NSW Health, with specialised tri-agency teams based at metropolitan and regional locations throughout NSW.
