Man accused of attempting to rape woman in city park
Stevie Petrie allegedly plied the woman with drink until she was too intoxicated to resist.
A man has appeared in court accused of attempting to rape a woman at a park in Dundee.
Stevie Petrie, 27, of Dundee, is accused of carrying out the attack in the early hours of Saturday morning in Orchar Park in Broughty Ferry.
Prosecutors allege he gave the woman alcoholic drinks until she was so intoxicated she was incapable of giving or withholding consent.
Petrie is then alleged to have removed the woman's clothes, performed a sex act on her and attempted to rape her.
Petrie made no plea during a brief private hearing on petition at Dundee Sheriff Court.
Sheriff John Rafferty continued the case for further examination and released Petrie on bail meantime.
