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.
