A 50-year-old man has been accused of carrying out a sex attack on a woman before picking her up and bundling her into a tumble drier.
Brian Lorimer is alleged to have carried out the bizarre attack in the Perth branch of Bannatyne’s Gym on September 21.
Lorimer, Rannoch Road, Perth, appeared at Perth Sheriff Court on Friday and denied three charges. He is accused of sexually assaulting the woman, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, by kissing her on the neck within the gym complex.
It is alleged that he then assaulted her on the same day by picking her up and placing her within an industrial tumble drier at the gym.
Lorimer is further alleged to have sent the woman a message five days later, asking her to have sex with him.
He denied the charges when he appeared in the dock and a trial was set for May next year.
