A former Catholic priest is facing more charges of child sexual abuse, relating to incidents dating back to the 1970s.

In April, the 83-year-old man from Subiaco was charged with physically and sexually assaulting seven boys and girls aged between six and 12-years-old while he was the priest at a Catholic church in Shenton Park.

The incidents allegedly occurred between 1979 and 1992.

Police have added three further charges of indecent assault relating to a girl who was seven-years-old at the time of the first offence.

These incidents allegedly occurred during 1970 when the man was a priest at a Catholic church in Carlisle.

The man was due to appear in court on Friday.
