A 27-year-old man has appeared at Banbridge Magistrates Court charged with a sexual offence.

He was David Armstrong, Frazer Park, Annaclone.

He was charged with a sexual offence against a girl under the age of 16 when he appeared last Thursday.

The charge against him alleges that on June 5 this year he intentionally engaged in the sexual touching of a female under the age of 16.

A police officer told the court, sitting in Newry, he believed he could connect the defendant with the charge.

Armstrong was remanded on his own bail of £500 to appear again in court on September 1.
