Man Charged After Allegedly Sexually Abusing Teenage Girl

The 21-year-old was arrested on Thursday after allegedly assaulting a 14-year-old girl on the Central Coast.

The accused man is set to face Gosford Local Court today after he allegedly had sex with the girl multiple times earlier this year.

Detectives from the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad started their investigation after they were told the girl had been assaulted by a man who was known to her.

Police said they made a number of unsuccessful attempts to find the accused before arresting the 21-year-old at a home in Woy Woy at around 3pm on Thursday afternoon.

Police will allege he had sex with the girl on multiple occasions at an Umina Beach Home in May of this year.

The 21-year-old has been denied bail and is expected to appear at Gosford Local Court later today.
