A 24-year-old man has appeared in court charged with rape.

Gerard Doherty, of 35 Linsfort Park, faces one charge in relation to an alleged incident on September 10, 2011.

An investgating officer told Derry Magistrates Court he believed he could connect the 24-year-old to the charge.

Doherty was released on his own bail of £500 and banned from having any contact with the alleged injured party.

He will appear in court again on April 5.
