A man is accused of sexually and indecently assaulting two young children in northern NSW, after inviting them to play with his pet dog.

Police say the 66-year-old man befriended the boy, aged eight and girl, 11, while playing with his dog at Nimbin on Saturday.  He later attacked the pair.

The children alerted their parents when the man left in his car.

The man was arrested on Sunday and charged with aggravated sexual assault and indecent assault.

He is expected to face Lismore Local Court this week.

  • nope teach children not to touch stranger animals.


  • Disgusting!! We need to keep a close eye on our children – this seems to happen all too often!!


  • It is pretty “sick” when you can’t trust a person with a pet. A person is a stranger until you know them. How long do you have to protect your children? The children may have thought the guy knew their parents. I know these children are possibly too young to distinguish between impressions they got. They may have thought they knew him…or he already knew them. I once called a lady by the wrong surname. They both lived in the same street and were very similar in appearance. It was only when the lady said “you can call me Mrs…..” that I realised the lady wasn’t who I thought she was. Seems it is true we all have a double. (I was accused off snubbing somebody one sat. morning—–we had gone to a country area by 7.30 the night before). At what age do you meet a stranger and decide they can be a friend.


  • This is just awful. I hope those poor children are okay and that the effects of this ordeal are not too damaging.


  • Those poor kids!! Later there are so many cases of sexual assaults in the news. So disturbing!!


  • Lke hz


  • Oh no. Those poor kids. I’m glad that monster was caught and has been arrested
