Ex Salvos accused of child sex offences

Two former Salvation Army officers have been charged with sexually abusing children at NSW boys' homes in the late 60s and early 1970s.

A 74-year-old man was arrested at his Waterloo home in Sydney on Wednesday morning and charged with 23 counts of indecent assault, while the second man, aged 77, was arrested in his Windsor home and charged with 13 offences.

Officers from the State Crime Command Sex Crimes Squad allege boys were sexually abused at homes in Bexley and Goulburn between 1968 and 1974.

The 74-year-old has been remanded by police and is due to face Central Local Court on Thursday. The 77-year-old has been granted conditional bail and will face court next month.
