Hong Kong police on Sunday charged a 57-year-old teacher over the alleged indecent assault of two girls at a Sham Shui Po nursery school.

The man – a Canadian national and Hong Kong identity card holder – is due to appear at Kowloon City Court on Monday. He faces two counts of indecent assault.

Police said they received a report on Friday that a foreign national employed by the nursery had allegedly indecently assaulted two six-year-old girls.

After a preliminary investigation, they arrested the man in the area on the same day.

The police’s Kowloon West district Child Abuse Investigation Unit is handling the case.
