A man will stand trial accused of assaulting and raping a woman in Dundee.
Gerald Ogilvie, 51, of Park Avenue, appeared in private before Sheriff Alastair Carmichael.
A petition claims he repeatedly punched the woman on the face, grabbed her by the neck and pinned her to a chair, attempted to remove her jeans, repeatedly grabbed and pulled her hair and forcibly performed a sexual act on her and raped her, all to her injury.
The offence is alleged to have taken place on May 9 at a property on Arbroath Road.
It was Ogilvie’s second appearance at Dundee Sheriff Court in the space of two weeks, after several other charges were dropped.
Further allegations of possessing cannabis resin, breach of the peace and threatening to sexually assault the same woman and threatening to kill her, and threatening to sexually assault a police officer, have been dropped from the petition by the Crown since his first appearance in court last week.
Ogilvie was represented by Gary McIlravey, who entered no plea on his behalf during the brief appearance and Ogilvie was refused bail by the sheriff.
He was fully committed for trial and remanded in custody.
