Teen charged with sex assault of boy, 9

AN 18-year-old man has been extradited from South Australia back to NSW to face charges of allegedly sexually assaulting a nine-year-old boy.

Police say the Mauritian man was a 17-year-old on holiday in Sydney when he allegedly twice raped a nine-year-old boy.

The alleged assaults took place in January 2017 at a home in western Sydney.

Police began investigating allegations in April 2017, and issued an arrest warrant last year while the accused was overseas.

The accused returned to Australia, flying into Adelaide last weekend, where police arrested him.

A magistrate granted NSW Police an application to extradite him, and he was taken to Mascot Police Station on Wednesday.

Police charged the teenager with two counts of sexual intercourse with a child under the age of 10 and two counts of indecent assault of a person under the age of 16.
