AN ABERYSTWYTH man is set to appear at Swansea Crown Court later this month charged with controlling or coercive behaviour and assault.

Jake Lewis, of 3 Terrace Road, appeared before Aberystwyth Magistrates’ Court on 31 March.

The 26-year-old is charged with “engaging in controlling / coercive behaviour in an intimate / family relationship” between 1 January 2020 and 11 September last year.

He is also charged with assaulting Kimberley Baxendale on 19 August in Aberystwyth.

No pleas were entered to those two charges, but a not guilty plea was recorded on a thrid charge of criminal damage between 7 September and 11 September last year.

Lewis is next due to appear at Swansea Crown Court for a plea and trial preparation hearing on 28 April.

He was remanded on unconditional bail until that date.
