A Donegal taxi-driver has been remanded in custody charged with raping a woman in Derry last Thursday.

Kieron Brian Coyle, 39 from Forest Park in Killygordon, denied raping the woman and sexually assaulting her in Galliagh.

A police office described Coyle as a “predatory attacker” who posed a risk to women.

Officers also seized the defendant’s car and forensic tests have been fast-tracked.

The officer said as a result of his arrest the police were also reviewing a number of allegations of a similar nature.

She added that two previous allegations of a sexual nature made against him by two other women were not proceeded with.

Bail was refused and the defendant was remanded in custody.
