A man has appeared in court accused of violently attacking and raping a woman at a property in Dundee.
Gerald Ogilvie, 51, of Park Avenue, is alleged to have threatened to sexually assault and kill the woman, before repeatedly punching her in the face, grabbing her by the throat and raping her.
He is also accused of threatening to sexually assault a police officer the following day at police HQ in the city.
Ogilvie appeared in private before Sheriff Robert Dickson at Dundee Sheriff Court on a petition alleging that he assaulted and raped a woman on Wednesday.
The attack is alleged to have happened at a property on Arbroath Road.
Prosecutors claim Ogilvie repeatedly punched the woman on the face, grabbed her by the throat and choked her, pulled her hair and forcibly performed a sexual act on her and raped her, to her injury.
He is further alleged to have possessed cannabis resin, a Class B drug, at Arbroath Road on Thursday.
Prosecutors also allege that Ogilvie committed a breach of the peace at the same property on Arbroath Road on the same date.
He is also alleged to have committed a further breach of the peace at police headquarters in West Bell Street on the same date.
Prosecutors allege that Ogilvie behaved in a threatening or abusive manner which was likely to cause a reasonable person to suffer fear or alarm, threatened to sexually assault the same woman and then threatened to kill her.
It is also alleged he threatened to sexually assault a police officer at police HQ.
Ogilvie was represented in court by solicitor Gary McIlravey.
Mr McIlravey entered no plea on Ogilvie’s behalf during his brief appearance in court and Sheriff Dickson refused bail.
The case was continued for further examination and Ogilvie was remanded in custody in the meantime.
