Man charged with rape of woman in city car park
No plea entered during court hearing
A man has appeared in court charged with raping a woman in a Peterborough car park in the early hours of the morning.
Raimondas Nyderis, (26), of Harris Street, Peterborough is alleged to have sexually assaulted the woman in the early hours of September 23 in a city car park.
Nyderis appeared at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court on Monday where he did not enter a plea to one count of rape.
Wearing an orange hi-vis jacket and grey tracksuit bottoms, he listened to proceedings through a Lithuanian interpreter.
The court heard how it is alleged Nyderis met the wom- an on Lincoln Road, before taking her to the Mattress Man car park in Lincoln Road in a car. The attack is said to have taken place in the vehicle.
Julie Murtagh, defending, made a bail application for Nyderis - who works as a fork lift truck driver near Huntingdon - but District Judge Ken Sheraton remanded him into custody.
Judge Sheraton said: “The allegation is a very serious one.”
Nyderis will next appear at Peterborough Crown Court for a plea and trial management hearing on Monday, November 5.
Cambridgeshire police said he was arrested and charged by detectives investigating a series of attacks on sex workers in Peterborough.
Detectives continue to investigate other attacks, on September 25 and September 27.
Anyone with information should call police on 101 quoting Op Thomson.
