A Sydney swimming instructor accused of sexually abusing two young girls is now facing 28 additional charges, a court has heard.

Key points:

  • Kyle Daniels was arrested a week ago and charged with abusing two girls
  • He was today charged with 28 additional offences involving another six girls
  • The 20-year-old is expected to apply for bail in Manly Local Court today

Kyle Daniels, 20, is accused of molesting a six-year-old girl while teaching lessons at the Mosman Swim Centre, on Sydney’s lower north shore, on February 2.

Police alleged the Knox Grammar School graduate, who is enrolled at the University of Sydney, raped an eight-year-old girl on February 14 — less than two weeks later.

Detectives began an investigation when the girls told their parents about the alleged assaults, one of which occurred inside the swim centre.

Mr Daniels was arrested at his Balgowlah home, where he lives with his mother, father and identical twin brother, just before lunchtime on March 12.

He was taken to Manly Police Station where he was charged with two counts of intentionally touching a child under 10 years and sexual intercourse with a child under the age of 10.

Police today confirmed he had been charged with an additional 28 offences.

In a statement, they said the charges included eight counts of sexual intercourse with a child under 10, six counts of intentionally sexually touching a child under 10 years and 14 counts of indecent assault of a person under 16 years of age.

“Police will allege in court the man sexually abused a further six girls — aged between six and 10 — on separate occasions during lessons at the Mosman pool between June 2018 and March 2019,” the statement said.

Mr Daniels worked at Mosman Swim Centre for two years, but was suspended before his arrest.

He remains in police custody but is expected to apply for bail at Manly Local Court today.
