A disability carer who allegedly secretly filmed videos of himself abusing vulnerable adults and children in western Sydney has been charged with an additional 35 offences.

In May 2020, the 20-year-old was arrested at a Parramatta business and charged with 16 offences after police alleged he abused residents at a disability-care home in Mt Druitt.

He has since been stood down from his position at the home.

The Eastern Creek man was accused of filming intimate videos of five of the home's residents, including acts of physical and verbal abuse, between June 2019 and April 2020.

He allegedly filmed intimate and sexual abuse footage of two children aged between four and 12.

He has since been charged with additional offences including 20 counts of recording an intimate image without consent, nine counts of intimidating with intent to cause fear or physical or mental harm, common assault and two counts of possessing child abuse material.

In total police say the man abused nine adults and two children between March and November 2019.

He has been refused bail and is due to appear before Penrith Local Court in July.
