Policeman in court charged with sexual assault
A police officer appeared in court today accused of groping a woman in the street.
Metropolitan Police Constable Marc Pullen, 37, is charged with sexual assault over an incident in Shepherd's Bush Place, west London, on December 21 last year.
His case was sent to Southwark Crown Court for trial during a short hearing at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court.
District Judge Daphne Wickham adjourned the case until November 25. Pullen was released on unconditional bail. He denies the offence.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said Pullen, who is based in Hammersmith and Fulham borough, has been placed on restricted duties.
Pullen gave his address in court as care of Reynolds Dawson solicitors, of Uxbridge Road, west London.
