A 24-YEAR-OLD man who is accused of rape and sexual assault has been released on bail by a judge.

Kai Connolly is said to have committed the alleged offences on the same woman between Thursday November 7 and Sunday November 10 last year.

No charges were formally put to the defendant, of County Road, and he did not enter any pleas during the brief hearing at Swindon Crown Court.

Judge Douglas Field adjourned the case to Friday September 12 and released Connolly on conditional bail until then.
