A BROMSGROVE man charged with committing sexual assaults on teenage girls has been given a trial date.

David Crowther, 55, of West Road, is facing four charges of sexual assault on two 14-year-old girls in Bromsgrove between June 1 and September 30, 2012.

Crowther was arrested in November 2012 and, following an investigation by North Worcestershire’s Child Protection Unit, he was charged in February.

A three day trial has been scheduled for Hereford Crown Court starting on October 13. He is due to make his next appearance in court on June 2 for a plea and case management hearing.

His bail was renewed on condition that he does not have unsupervised contact with children under 17.
