DAVID Cyprys is behind bars in NSW for at least a week after being charged with sexual assault, one day after he left a correctional facility in Ararat in Victoria, according to NSW Police.
The 51-year-old was arrested by officers from the Criminal Investigation Unit (Victorian Police). He was then taken to Ballarat Local Court where he was met by detectives from NSW’s Eastern Suburbs Police Area Command, who sought his extradition to NSW.
His arrest warrant relates to a charge of sexual assault (Cat 4) – assault and act of indecency, from an offence that allegedly occurred in Bondi in the 1980s.
The application for extradition was granted, he was escorted by police to NSW and at 6.45pm last night (Wednesday) he was placed into custody at the Mascot Police Station. The arrest warrant was executed, and he was refused bail.
In Central Local Court today, Cyprys was ordered to remain in custody until his next bail hearing on October 24.
