Last February officers raided a home on Chamber Avenue in Bondi and seized electronic devices and video tapes for forensic examination.
The 60-year-old drama teacher was arrested at Waverley Police Station about 9am on Thursday and charged with rape.
He’s been given conditional bail and will appear in the Downing Centre Local Court on July 13.
