Detectives from the Hume Local Area Command have arrested and charged a brother from a religious order in relation to alleged historical indecent assaults upon children in the Goulburn area.
In February 2014, Strike Force Charish was formed to investigate allegations of child sex offences said to have occurred between 1978 and 1980.
The offences allegedly occurred upon eight boys aged 12, while the man was a school teacher at a private school in Goulburn.
As a result of ongoing inquiries, about 7.15am today (Tuesday 19 August 2014), investigators arrested a 65-year-old man at Sydney Airport.
He was taken to Mascot Police Station, where he was charged with 11 counts of indecent assault upon a male.
The man has been refused bail to appear before Waverley Local Court today (Tuesday 19 August 2014).
Investigators encourage any victim of any indecent or sexual assault, no matter how long ago, to come forward.
