Detectives investigating a serious sexual assault in York have charged a man with two counts of rape.

The 27-year-old from Darlington is also charged with one count of sexual assault and theft of a mobile phone.

He was due to appear at York Magistrates’ Court today (Saturday June 3).

The charges come after a young woman reported being sexually assaulted in the early hours of Monday (May 29).

Detectives previously released a CCTV image of a man they needed to talk to in connection with the investigation. It was taken from the Kuda Nightclub on Clifford Street at around 2.45am.

The woman, aged in her late teens, is receiving support from specially trained police officers while the investigation continues.
