Two men have been charged over the alleged rape of a woman at an address in Scarborough.

Simon Muir, 38, and Alan Cammish, 35, both of Herdborough Road, appeared at Scarborough Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday charged in relation to the incident, which happened on Saturday night.

A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said that a 22-year-old woman had been the victim of a serious sexual assault.

Both men were remanded in custody and will appear again at York Crown Court on October 6.

Muir was also charged with possession of a Class C drug and a Class B drug.

Neither of the men entered a plea.

Two men aged 24 and 26, also from Scarborough, who were arrested in connection with the incident have been released on bail to allow for further police enquiries.
