Man charged with aged care sex assaults

A man has faced court over a series of alleged sexual assaults on residents at two Perth aged care homes.

Armand Lutula Wema, 56, was working at the homes when he allegedly indecently assaulted three female residents aged 71, 84 and 93 between July and January.

He appeared on Wednesday in Armadale Magistrates Court charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault and one count of aggravated sexual penetration without consent.

An application for bail was refused and Wema was remanded into custody to reappear in the same court on February 24.
