A teacher at a Sydney high school is behind bars charged with sexually touching one of his 13-year-old students.
Detectives from the NSW Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad began investigating in December last year following reports the girl had been sexually assaulted in class at a south-west Sydney school.
Police pounced on the 63-year-old man at a home in the NSW Southern Highlands just after 8.30am this morning.
He was taken to Moss Vale Police Station and charged with two counts of intentionally sexually touching a child aged between 10 and 16 years.
Police will allege the man sexually touched the girl during class in December last year.
He has been refused bail to appear at Moss Vale Local Court later today.
Investigations are continuing.
