Lithgow man to face historic sexual assault charges

A 58-year-old man will appear in Lithgow Local Court today charged over the alleged historic sexual assault of two girls in the state’s Central Tablelands.

In Feb 2020, detectives from the Chifley Police District commenced investigations after allegations two girls had been sexually and indecently assaulted by a man known to them on a number of occasions between 1994 and 1995, NSW Police said in a statement today.

“Following extensive investigations, detectives attended a home in Lithgow, about 11am on Thursday 2 February 2023, where they arrested a 58-year-old man,” Police said.

He was taken to Lithgow Police Station and charged with 18 offences, including:

  • Commit act of indecency with victim under 10 years (three counts)
  • Sexual intercourse with person under the age of 10 years (nine counts)
  • Commit act of indecency with person under 10 years (six counts)

He was refused bail and appeared at Bathurst Local Court in February, where he was remanded to appear in Lithgow Local Court today.
