A teenager has appeared at Dundee Sheriff Court charged with raping four women over the course of the last two years.
The alleged offences are said to have taken place at various locations in Dundee, Tayside and Fife between 2015 and 2017.
Jordan Dunn, 19, of Auchinblae Place in Dundee, appeared in private before Sheriff George Way on a petition alleging that, on various occasions over three months in 2015, at three different locations in Blairgowrie, he assaulted a woman, seized her by the body and raped her.
It is also alleged that Dunn, on various occasions between dates in 2016 and this year, at a house in Fife, at a house in Angus and at a house in Dundee, assaulted another woman.
Dunn is accused of pinning the woman to a sofa, removing her clothing and raping her.
A third charge alleges that on April 29, at another address in Dundee, he assaulted another woman, pinned her to a sofa, removed her clothing and raped her, to her injury.
He is also alleged to have, on November 7 2017, at an address in Dundee, assaulted a fourth woman, removed her clothing and raped her.
During Dunn’s brief appearance in front of Sheriff Way, he made no plea and was remanded in custody by the sheriff.
Solicitor Ross Donnelly made no motion for bail.
Sheriff Way continued the case for further examination.
Dunn is expected to appear again in private before a sheriff next week.
It is anticipated that he will be fully committed for trial, to take place at some point in 2018.
