A man has been charged after a woman alleged he knowingly infected her with HIV.

Police began investigating this month and, on Thursday, officers from the Eastern Suburbs Police Area Command arrested a 53-year-old man in Rozelle.

When police searched his backpack, they allegedly found a liquid they believe is a prohibited drug, as well as ammunition.

It’s understood, in the course of their investigation, officers also allegedly found video footage relating to bestiality.

The man was taken to Newtown police station and charged with causing grievous bodily harm to a person with intent, bestiality and possession of ammunition without holding a licence or permit.

Refused bail, the man was due to appear at Newtown Local Court on Friday.
