A 26-year-old man charged with one count of attempted rape, burglary and aggra­vated robbery will have his plea heard on March 12, 2018.

The accused, Niko Levula, alleg­edly committed the offence on No­vember 5, 2017 when he entered the house belonging to the 35-year-old complainant while she was sleep­ing and threatened to rape her.
