·1-min read

A former netball coach previously accused of molesting teenage girls will face fresh charges, following investigations by Sydney detectives.

Officers from the NSW State Crime Command's Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad established Strike Force Biscoe after reports three girls had been sexually touched by a man known to them, last October.

The 70-year-old was arrested in December and charged with nine offences.

As part of ongoing investigations, police received reports two more girls were sexually touched by a man at a church in Beverly Hills between December 2016 and December 2020.

The man was subsequently arrested at Hurstville on Thursday morning and charged with two counts of indecent assault of a person under 16 years, assault with an act of indecency and sexually touching another person without consent.

He has been granted strict bail to appear in Sutherland Local Court next month.
