Man denies sexual assaults

Have your say

A Thetford man has denied committing a number of sexual assaults.

Numo Santos, of Anne Bartholomew Road, Thetford, is accused of intentionally touching women aged 16 or over in a sexual way without their consent and without reasonably believing consent to have been given.

He is said to have done so on five occasions, with the alleged offences taking place in Thetford between March 31, last year, and May 5, this year.

The 36-year-old appeared at Bury St Edmunds Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, represented by Malcolm Plummer.

He pleaded not guilty to all five charges and was released on unconditional bail.

His next court appearance will be at Norwich Crown Court on December 10.
