A 71-year-old man has been charged over the historical offence of indecently dealing with a child under 16 years old.
Police said that on several occasions in 2010 the man indecently dealt with a child who was known to him.
The victim came forward to police in October 2017 where she disclosed the offences to detectives from the Child Protection and Investigation Unit.
After a lengthy investigation into the allegations, police located and charged the man with four counts of indecent treatment of a child under 16.
He is due to face the Mount Isa Magistrates Court next month.
