Charges have been laid over alleged sexual assaults on an elderly man in his Roselands home.

A police spokesman said the man, 85, was asleep in his Violet Street home on an unknown date when a man, 58, allegedly entered his home and sexually assaulted him.

A further assault had occurred in the elderly man’s home on Friday, October 6.

“It is understood the two men had been known to each other for a short time,” the spokesman said.

The incidents were reported to police, who arrested a man, 58, at Punchbowl on Sunday.

He was charged with two counts each of aggravated sexual assault – break and enter with intent, attempted sexual assault and indecent assault.

Bail was refused, and he is due to appear in Burwood Local Court on Monday.
