More allegations against man charged with abuse

5:32 pm on 30 May 2013

Police are investigating further allegations against a man already facing several charges involving the abuse of young people at an Air Force base.

The 68-year-old man has been on strict bail conditions since his first appearance in the Waitakere District Court earlier in May.

The charges against him include unlawful sexual connection, rape and the indecent assault of two victims, aged from six to 17, between 1977 and 1987.

The man was due to appear in court again on Thursday and police say they are investigating allegations by two other people.

They say most of the alleged offending occurred in the accused's homes at the Royal New Zealand Air Force base in Hobsonville and in his car.

They say there may be other women who came into contact with the accused over the years who have information they want to tell police about.
