A primary school teacher will face court in February 2018 after being charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault.
In November 2017, police were made aware of allegations concerning the behaviour of a male teacher at a primary school in Blacktown.
Detectives from the Child Abuse Squad made inquiries into the matter and about 1pm yesterday (Tuesday 6 February 2018), they arrested a 23-year-old man at Valley Heights.
The man was subsequently charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault – victim under authority of offender, before being granted conditional bail to appear before Blacktown Local Court on Tuesday 27 March 2018.
In court, police will allege the teacher indecently assaulted three girls, all aged nine of whom are students at the primary school the man most recently taught at.
The offences are alleged to have occurred through 2017.
The man is not currently performing any teaching duties at the school.
