A man has been charged with sexual offences against five children following a police search of a Blue Mountains home.
The 53-year-old was originally arrested and charged on February 10 after police from the Penrith and Liverpool Child Abuse Squads alleged he had sexual intercourse with a six-year-old girl.
He was granted conditional bail the following day, however officers attached to Strike Force Cremin - formed to conduct inquiries into the alleged abuse - have now charged him following further investigations.
"This included the execution of two search warrants at a residence in the Blue Mountains, and the seizure of clothing, computers and electronic storage devices, which have been forensically examined," a police statement released today (Friday) said.
"Investigators subsequently identified a further sexual assault offence against the six-year-old.
"They will also allege the man sexually assaulted an 11-year-old girl, and indecently assaulted those and other victims."
The man was arrested yesterday (Thursday) at Penrith police station and charged with 38 offences relating to five girls between the ages of six and 12 that occurred between September 2010 and January of this year.
Charges include sexual intercourse with a child between 10 and 14 years old, aggravated sexual intercourse with a child under the age of 10, indecent assault, committing acts of indecency, and grooming a child under 16 for unlawful sexual activity.
The man was refused bail to appear in Penrith Local Court today (Friday ).
Investigations are continuing.
