Man charged with indecent assault

A North Island education professional facing two charges of indecent assault has had suppression on his identity, occupation and place of work continued.

Appearing in court today, name suppression for the man was continued to allow police to conduct further enquiries.

Outside court Fairfax Media approached the accused who refused to comment.

Management at the education facility where the man worked were alerted to the incident in November last year and the man was immediately stood down.

Police and the disciplinary body were told the next day. The man has signed an agreement not to work in his profession while the disciplinary body awaits the court decision and carries out its own investigation.

The man's contract at the institution was terminated in January this year and they will also conduct an independent investigation.

The man will reappear in court on April 3.
