A 49-year-old man has been charged at Lithgow Police Station with two counts of sexual intercourse without consent, and two counts of sexually touch another person without consent, following an arrest at a home in Lithgow at about 8am today.



Last month, police received a report that a woman had allegedly been sexually assaulted in Sydney's west by a man known to her.


Detectives from the State Crime Command’s Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad were notified and took carriage of the investigation under Strike Force Reka.

Officers were told that the 33-year-old woman was allegedly drugged and then sexually assaulted by the man during the evening of Wednesday May 4, 2022 at a home at Dean Park.



"The woman sought medical treatment at Blacktown Hospital the next day, where she underwent an SAIK (Sexual Assault Investigation Kit) and contacted an associate for help," police said.


The man was refused bail to appear at Lithgow Local Court today.

The Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad is comprised of detectives who are specially trained to investigate matters against children and adults, including sexual assault, serious physical abuse and extreme cases of neglect.



Anyone with concerns about suspected child abuse or exploitation should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au.
