A man has appeared in court accused of abusing two children between the 1970s and 1990s.

Robert Ind, 74, has been charged with rape, buggery and indecent assault on a child.

Both boys were under 14 when the alleged assaults took place, prosecutors say.

Appearing before Oxford Crown Court on Thursday, Ind, of no fixed address, entered no pleas to the seven charges.

Judge Maria Lamb adjourned the case for a hearing in March. A provisional trial date was set for November 14.

Ind’s bail conditions require him to sign on at St Aldates police station three times a week.
