Last updated at 10:41, Tuesday, 07 January 2014
A man accused of a sexual offence in Keswick has been banned from the town after appearing before a judge.
Joshua Thwaites, 22, was charged with stalking a woman and sexually assaulting her after alleged incidents between July and September last year.
He was due to enter pleas to the charges at Carlisle Crown Court but the case was adjourned after it was revealed he now faces a further charge alleging that he had intimidated his alleged victim’s father by being abusive to him after meeting him in Keswick.
Thwaites, who used to live in Keswick but has recently been living in Crown Street, Cockermouth, was granted bail until February 3, when all allegations will be put to him.
In the meantime he was banned from entering Keswick or having any contact with his alleged victim or her father.
