A man has appeared in court accused of two rapes and an indecent assault on a child.
John Dye, 48, of Goosecroft, Forfar, appeared in private at Dundee Sheriff Court before Sheriff Lorna Drummond on a petition.
It is alleged that, between 1993 and 1997, at an address in Kirkton, Dundee, and at another unknown address in Kirkton, Dundee, he behaved in a lewd, indecent and libidinous manner towards a primary-school aged child.
He is further accused of, between the same dates and at the same places, raping the same child and on another occasion, picking the child up in a car and raping the child in a car.
Dye made no plea and was granted bail.
The case was continued for further examination.
