Former Australian swimming coach Dick Kane was charged with sexually abusing a teenage girl who trained in southern Sydney over 40 years ago.
A 76-year-old man was arrested at Condel Park’s house early Wednesday.
Deputy director Chris Nicholson said the man was charged with nine crimes related to girls aged 15 and 16.
He faces six carnal knowledge accusations and three vulgar assault accusations.
“These crimes allege to have occurred in and around the southern part of Sydney in the mid-1970s,” said Deputy Director Nicholson.
“These claims are very serious … and investigations are underway.
“I would also like to thank the victims for their courage and courage.
“It’s never been easy for a victim of sexual violence to come forward and talk to the police,” he said.
NSW police began an investigation in January 2021 after receiving information on multiple sexual and vulgar attacks on teenage girls at Car’s Spark’s swimming school in the 1970s.
King’s Cross detectives founded Strike Force Coco and unveiled allegations of sexual abuse of another teenage girl at the same school in the 1970s.
Deputy Director Nicholson said the incident occurred “in many places in and around the southern part of Sydney in the mid-1970s.”
Caine is recognized as one of Australia’s most successful swimming coaches and was inducted into the Australian Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame earlier this year.
He has been denied bail and will appear in the Bankstown District Court on Wednesday.
