A second man has been arrested and charged over an alleged pedophile ring that terrorised vulnerable children at a western Sydney school four decades ago.
After the first arrest in March, police from Strike Force Eckersley said they were circling dozens of offenders after victims came forward with harrowing tales of genital mutilation and sadistic punishments at the government-run Daruk Training School.
Police arrested a 73-year-old man on the Gold Coast on Tuesday, and he was charged with multiple counts of assault and buggery.
The man was bailed and is expected to appear before Penrith Local Court on May 23, the Queensland Department of Justice told AAP.
The abuse, which allegedly took place between 1965 and 1985, involved staff and adults linked to the Penrith school, which looked after young offenders and troubled teens.
The first man arrested over the school, 67-year-old Brian Peckover, faces multiple counts of assault and buggery.
He was granted bail and is expected to appear before Penrith Local Court on May 25.
