Police are investigating the alleged sexual assault of a toddler at a play centre in western Sydney yesterday.

Emergency services were called to the Lollipop's Playland and Cafe on Mulgoa Rd in Penrith about 12.20pm on Sunday after a two-year-old girl was found injured.

Officers were told the girl's mum was looking for her for some time before she was found by a member of the public in a store room in the play centre.

Nepean Police Officers established a crime scene. The matter has now been referred to the State Crime Command's Child Abuse and Sex Crimes squad who launched an investigation into the incident.

The toddler was at Lollipop's Playland and Cafe in Penrith when she was sexually assaulted.
