A man charged with abusing six-year-old girl on a bus.

NSW Police have charged a 48-year-old man for indecently assaulting a little girl on a bus earlier this week.

According to their statement, the six-year-old girl was catching the bus near Charlestown when the man got onto the bus and sat next to her.

“About 3.45pm on Wednesday (4 May 2016), a man got on a bus at Frederick Street, Charlestown and sat down next to a 6-year-old girl,” the statement says.

“He allegedly spoke to the girl before indecently assaulting her. He got off the bus a short time later at Gateshead.”

After the bus trip the girl reported the assault to her mother who then informed the police.

Mid-morning on Saturday, the police arrested the man in Charlestown after a series of investigations.

He has since been charged with aggravated indecent assault.
