A man will appear at Cambridge Crown Court to answer charges that he sexually assaulted and harassed a woman in Littleport.

Daniel Jones, 75, of Isle Bridge Road, Outwell, near Wisbech, is facing two counts of sexual assault and a further count of harassment without violence.

It is alleged that, between November 11 and December 31 last year, Jones touched a woman in a sexual manner without her consent. A second allegation of assault relates to an incident which took place in March this year.

It is also alleged that, between November 1 last year and April 27 this year, Jones harassed a woman by blocking doorways and asking her for a hug and a kiss before she was allowed to pass.

Jones appeared at Cambridge Crown Court on July 9 but no plea was entered. He was granted bail and told to appear at the court again on September 29 for a plea and case management hearing.
