A MAN will appear in court charged with the alleged indecent assault of a teenage boy in a local shopping centre toilet.
The 56-year-old has been granted conditional bail over the alleged incident, which happened at the Toormina Gardens Shopping Centre last Friday.
Police will allege a 13-year-old boy was indecently assaulted by a unknown man that morning.
Detectives attached to the State Crime Command Child Abuse Unit were called to investigate.
A NSW Police Media spokesperson said the man was arrested at the shopping centre at 5pm that afternoon and charged with indecent assault on a child aged under 16.
He appeared in a brief bail court hearing at the Coffs Harbour Courthouse on Saturday where strict bail conditions were imposed.
He is to appear in the Coffs Harbour Local Court next Monday.
