A 26-year-old man has been charged with a number of offences relating to a string of incidents in Reading on Saturday morning.

Carl Potter, of Moreton Way, Cippenham, has been charged with two counts of committing an offence with the intention of committing a relevant sexual offence and two counts of using threatening behaviour.

He has also been charged with two counts of criminal damage to property and one count of harassment, robbery and assault.

The charges relate to an incident involving a woman, who was walking along Oxford Road at around 5.30am on Saturday morning.

The next related incident, which happened about an hour later, was when a man buzzed another woman’s intercom at flats in the Oxford Road area and threatened her.

The third related incident happened the same morning when a man grabbed a woman who was cycling along Swansea Road.

Potter has been remanded in custody and is due to appear at Reading Magistrates’ Court today.
