A young swim coach accused of sexually abusing two young girls is a clean-cut looking twin from a wealthy family on Sydney’s north shore. 

Kyle Daniels, 20, appeared in Manly Local Court on Wednesday charged with having sexual intercourse with an eight-year-old girl and inappropriately touching another girl, six.

The alleged offences took place during private lessons at the Mosman Swim Centre last month.

Daniels was arrested at his parents’ Balgowlah home on Tuesday after investigation by detectives from the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad.

He was charged with two counts of intentionally sexually touching a child under the age of 10 and having sexual intercourse with a child under 10. 

Daniels’ parents were in court to support their son during his brief mention.

In addition to the charges, police took out an Apprehended Violence Order banning him from contacting or approaching the two alleged victims.

Under the order, he must not assault or threaten the girls, stalk, harass or intimidate them, or ‘intentionally or recklessly destroy or damage any property that belongs to or is in possession of’ the girls. 

Daniels is also banned from approaching Mosman Public School or Mosman Swim Centre.
