The 25-year-old was living with his mother when she allegedly discovered he had been abusing two foster children, aged six and seven, who were living in their north Brisbane home.

The abuse was alleged to have been going on for two years.

It was understood that on making the discovery, the woman immediately contacted the Department of Child Safety and reported her son.
