An arrest warrant has been issued for a 44-year-old Carlisle man who faces three charges of sexually touching a woman without consent.
Mohammed Fafzul Islam, whose address was given as the Shaha Restaurant, Botchergate, is said to have committed the offences on September 29, 2008.
He has previously denied all three allegations.
Islam elected to have the matter dealt with by a jury at Carlisle Crown Court.
It is further alleged that on November 24, 2008, Islam failed without a reasonable excuse to surrender at Carlisle Magistrates’ Court when required to do so.
