Retired Catholic brother arrested over child sex offences

A RETIRED Catholic brother is the latest clergy member to be arrested over historic child sex offences in NSW.

Police allege that between 1972-81, four young boys were abused by a teacher at schools and at a camp in Sydney's west.

Investigations into a 72-year-old suspect, who now lives in Rome, began in June this year.

Detectives swooped on the man while he was in Sydney on Tuesday.

He was charged with four counts of indecently assaulting a male and will front court again in December.
