Dundee man accused of attempting to rape woman in park after getting her drunk

A man has appeared in court charged with a sex attack in a popular Broughty Ferry park.

Stevie Petrie, 27, of Sandy Loan in Dundee, is accused of, on Saturday, February 3, 2018, at Orchar Park, attempting to rape a woman after getting her drunk.

The charge alleges that, having supplied her with alcohol and having encouraged her to drink it and while she was so intoxicated with alcohol that she was incapable of giving or withholding her consent, he removed her clothing and attempted to rape her.

Petrie appeared in private before Sheriff John Rafferty and made no plea before being granted bail while the case was continued for further examination.
