A Canterbury man accused of assaulting a woman in order to commit a sexual offence has had further charges brought against him.

The 30-year-old from Chartham, is alleged to have carried out the attack in University Road on Friday 2 June 2017.

He was arrested and charged following an investigation by detectives from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate and is currently awaiting his trial in custody.

Separate incident

Subsequent enquiries have now resulted in the Crown Prosecution Service authorising charges in connection with a separate incident on Ashford Road, Chartham, on Wednesday 13 April 2016.

The man has been charged with the same three offences for each incident, which are sexual assault, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, and committing an offence (i.e. the assault) with the intention of committing a sexual offence.

He has pleaded not guilty to all counts and is due to go on trial at Canterbury Crown Court on Tuesday 24 April 2018.
