A man will face court after a child was sexually assaulted in Orange last week, NSW Police say.
Police will allege about 3pm on Friday yesterday, a 5-year-old girl mistakenly attended the male public toilets at a park on Woodward Road.
The girl’s mother went to get the girl who disclosed that a man had allegedly sexually assaulted her.
Officers from Canobolas Local Area Command were notified of the incident and established a crime scene at the location and searched for the man without success.
Following inquiries, about 4pm today, officers arrested a 37-year-old man in Moad Street, Orange.
He was taken to Orange Police Station and charged with sexual intercourse – child under 10.
The man was refused bail to appear at Orange Bail Court tomorrow.
