Police say the child was asleep when the man, believed to be in his 50s, climbed onto her bed at a home in Barker Street, Kingsford, in the city’s east, in the early hours of Monday.

“The man spoke to the girl briefly before indecently assaulting her and leaving through the same window,” a NSW police spokesperson said.
