A MAN charged with a catalogue of violent offences against one woman has elected to face a trial by jury.

Ross Chittock, of Gainsborough Green, Abingdon, appeared at Oxford Crown Court on Friday to deny five counts of assault by beating, four counts of damaging property and one of inflicting grievous bodily harm.

All of the offences for violence are alleged to have been carried out against one woman between January and April this year.

The 31-year old's trial, which is expected to last three days, will take place at the same court on August 20.
