Man denies rape of three sleeping women in Aberdeen

A man has denied raping three women while they slept in Aberdeen.

Isaac Samuel, 32, has lodged a special defence of consent.

He went on trial earlier this month accused of assaulting and raping the three women on various dates between May 2000 and December 2010.

Taking the stand at the High Court in Aberdeen, Mr Samuel said he had never been convicted of any assault or sexual offence. The trial continues on Tuesday.
