After a brief interaction, police allege he kissed the boy on the lips before the child’s parent pushed him away.

The incident was reported to Sydney City Police Area Command officers who arrived a short time later.

The 28-year-old man, who is an Indian national, was arrested before being taken to Day Street Police Station.

He was charged with intentionally sexually touching a child under 10 years. He was refused bail and will appear at Central Local Court on Monday.
