A Bogangar man has been charged after allegedly making sexually explicit remarks towards two ambulance paramedics last week and indecently assaulting one of them.

Emergency services were called to a house on Oleander Street at about 4.55pm on Friday (March 24), to treat a man at the address.

Police say that while the two NSW Ambulance paramedics were at the house, a man allegedly made sexually explicit remarks towards them, before indecently assaulting one of the paramedics.
