John Meehan (21), of Northland Road, was accused of committing the offences on September 9 and September 11.

An investigating officer told the court he believed he could connect the defendant to the charges.

Meehan was released on his own bail of £500 and banned from consuming alcohol or having any contact with the injured party.

He will appear in court again on October 15.
