A man has been charged following sexual assaults that took place during burglaries in Oxfordshire.

Ashley Blossom, 26, of Lime Crescent, Bicester, faces two counts of burglary and two counts of sexual assault.

On Saturday two Bicester homes were broken into with items stolen. Women in both houses say they were sexually assaulted.

Mr Blossom appeared in court earlier and was remanded in custody to appear at Oxford Crown Court on 15 April.

The incidents are alleged to have taken place on the Southwold estate.

Bethany Green, 21, of no fixed address, has also been charged with receiving stolen goods in connection with the same offences.

She was bailed until her appearance at Oxford Crown Court, also on 15 April.

The hearing took place at Banbury Magistrates' Court.
