A 28-YEAR-OLD man has appeared before Burnley magistrates, accused of sexually assaulting four women.
James Larkin, of Lyndhurst Road, Burnley, is said to have struck in about 15 minutes on the morning of November 16th last year. One alleged victim is said to have been touched in two separate incidents.
The court was told the women were aged between 16 and 42 years old. Larkin is charged with four allegations of sexual assault and one count of attempted sexual assault.
The defendant did not indicate pleas. The bench decided the case should be heard at crown court and Larkin was bailed until a date to be arranged by the higher court.
