Man facing sex assault trial at Carlisle Crown Court

A man accused of putting his hand down the back of the trousers of a woman in Keswick is to go on trial in April charged with a sex offence.

Joshua Andrew Thwaites, 22, who used to have an address in Keswick but has recently been living in Crown Street, Cockermouth, pleaded not guilty at Carlisle Crown Court to sexually assaulting the woman by touching her.

The incident allegedly happened in Keswick on July 8.

Thwaites also denied intimidating both his victim and her father on November 22, intending that the course of justice be interfered with.

He was remanded on bail and will go on trial in the week of April 22.

In the meantime he was banned from entering Keswick or having any contact with his alleged victim or her father.
