A man from Combs who is accused of committing two offences of rape has appeared before a judge at Ipswich Crown Court.

The offences are alleged to have been committed at an address in the Stowmarket area on the night of November 2-3.

Today Robertson appeared at Ipswich Crown Court for a preliminary hearing before Judge Peter Thompson.

Judge Thompson told Robertson that he would have to return to court on January 25 for a plea and case management hearing. Until that date Robertson will continue to be remanded in custody.
