A man accused of street attacks on women in Toxteth on Boxing Day appeared in court today.
Police received reports of a sexual assault and a physical assault against two women in Sefton Park Road at around 7am on Monday.
Officers were called to the scene and said a third woman reported that she had also been sexually assaulted in Brompton Avenue at around 6.40am.
He appeared at South Sefton Magistrates’ Court this morning for a brief hearing, which had to be adjourned because a Somali-speaking interpreter was not available.
The court clerk said: “The defendant’s native language is Somali. There will be an interpreter available tomorrow.”
Magistrates said Jafar would next appear at Liverpool Magistrates’ Court and remanded him in custody until Thursday, December 29.
