A 31-year-old man denied two charges of sex assault on a woman, when he appeared in court.

It is alleged that the man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, committed the offences on February 14, in Pembroke and Southampton.

It was further alleged in Magistrates’ Court that the man, from Pembroke, punched and hit the woman with a belt on March 5 in Pembroke.

Magistrate Maxanne Anderson adjourned the case until April 8, and released the defendant on $3,000 bail.

Ms Anderson also ordered the man to wear an electronic monitoring device, have no contact with the alleged victim and report to Hamilton Police Station twice a week.
