Catholic brother charged with alleged indecent assault

POLICE have charged a Catholic brother with allegedly indecently assaulting two teenage boys in the 1960s.

Strike Force Georgiana detectives attended a home in Penrith about midday today, serving two court attendance notices on the legal representation of an 83-year-old Glenbrook man.

Police said the notices relate to eight counts of indecent assault with a child under the age of 16.

The 83-year-old man will appear in Newcastle Local Court on February 26.

Police will allege the offences occurred in the early to mid 1960s while the man was teaching at a school at Hamilton. 

Strike Force Georgiana was established in March 2008 by Lake Macquarie police to investigate allegations of child sexual abuse by various priests within the region.
