A 73-year-old former Catholic Marist Brother has been accused of indecently assaulting a boy when he was teaching at a WA primary school more than 30 years ago.

Police say the arrest by Rockingham detectives comes after an extensive investigation into the alleged offending against the boy, who was aged 10 at the time of the first incident in 1982.

The man has been charged with two counts of indecent treatment of a child under 14 years of age and is due to appear in the Perth Magistrates Court later on Friday.
