Accused of sexually assaulting other male

A 25-year-old man has appeared in court accused of sexually assaulting another male.

Kenneth Robert Martin Ferguson, of The Old Fort, Strathfoyle, is charged with sexually assaulting a man on December 30, last year.

He is further charged with making a threat to kill, possession of a knife, criminal damage and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

An investigating officer told Derry Magistrate’s Court he believed he could connect Ferguson to the charges.

The 25-year-old was released on bail and banned from contacting the alleged injured party or going within 100 metres of his home.

He will appear in court again on April 3.
