Court told of Dundonald hospital sex attacks on OAP
A man has been remanded after being charged with two serious sexual assaults on a female pensioner in the Ulster Hospital.
David Hull, a 57-year-old from Main Street, Carrowdore, appeared yesterday in Newtownards Magistrates Court.
The two separate sexual offences are alleged to have happened on September 2 to a 65-year-old woman who is understood to have been a patient in the Dundonald hospital.
Further details of the charges against the Newtownards man were not read to the court.
The accused was handcuffed to a prison guard as he was led into the dock. Hull spoke only once to confirm his name.
A PSNI detective constable told the court he believed he could connect the accused to the charges.
Speaking on behalf of his client, defence solicitor Hugh Edgar told the Magistrates Court that Hull would not be seeking bail.
Hull was remanded in custody as District Judge Mark Hamilton adjourned the court until October 15 where he ordered the accused to re-appear via video link.
