The 50-year-old was arrested at a home in Roseville, on Sydney's upper north shore, on Friday following investigations.

He has been charged with sexual intercourse with a child under 10 and indecent assault of a person under 16 years of age.

He was refused bail to appear in Parramatta Local Court on Saturday.
