A MAN is facing trial over an alleged sex attack on a woman in Renfrew.

Jason Docherty is said to have abused the woman, who can’t be named for legal reasons, in February this year at a property in Crerand Drive.

Prosecutors claim Docherty, 47, grabbed her and struck her head against a wall, lay on top of her and forced his hand between her legs.

It’s also claimed he ran at her, pushed her on to a bed, repeatedly made derogatory remarks to her and then touched her inappropriately against her will, leaving her injured.

Docherty is also accused of breaking a special bail condition not to approach or contact her by repeatedly banging on the door of her home, entering the property uninvited and threatening her on two occasions on June 25 this year.

And he is said to have behaved in a threatening or abusive way on two occasions on the same day by shouting, swearing, repeatedly striking her door, threatening her with violence, grabbing a mobile phone, dismantling it and throwing it against a wall.

Docherty also faces a final charge of being in possession of cannabis, a class-B drug, on February 11 this year.

When the case against him called at Paisley Sheriff Court last week for a pre-trial hearing, Sheriff Seith Ireland continued matters until next month for a further pre-trial hearing to take place.
