Operation Arkstone: Newcastle man arrested over alleged child sex abuse ring

A Newcastle man has become the 15th person arrested after police uncovered a global paedophile ring alleged to have filmed and shared in the sexual abuse of almost 50 children in Australia.

The 54-year-old was taken into custody on Friday after he was identified as an alleged member of the group.

He faces a string of charges, including possessing, soliciting and sharing child abused material, and bestiality – offences which carry a maximum penalty of 15 years’ imprisonment.

The man is due to appear before Newcastle Local Court on Saturday.
