A woman told a jury she has no faith in the police after she was allegedly sexually assaulted by an officer.

She claimed she was repeatedly groped by a police officer at a flat in Glasgow’s Ruchill on September 2, 2020.

She stated that the officer tried to kiss her on the mouth and asked to go to the bedroom.

Dilexan Aloysious, 28, is on trial at Glasgow Sheriff Court accused of assaulting the woman while on duty.

Court papers state Aloysious was acting in his duty as a police constable at the time.

It is stated he rubbed the woman’s body, groped her over her clothing and asked her to lower her trousers.

Further claims made include touching her on the legs and uttering sexual remarks towards her.

Aloysious faces a separate sexual assault charge against the same woman while off-duty at the same place and date.

It is alleged he kissed her on the mouth, uttered sexual remarks towards her and groped her over her clothing.

He is then said to have placed his hand under her clothing and groped her.

He allegedly carried out an identical offence under her clothing.

Aloysious is stated to have exposed himself and asked her to perform a sex act.

The final claim states Aloysious carried out an attack on her private area.

The court heard a 999 call after the incident in which the woman is heard to say that the officer brought her teenage daughter home at 6am. 

The woman claimed that the officer touched her on the arm and made a sexual remark.

She stated the officer told her that he was “trying to comfort” her and said he would return later on.

The woman told the jury in her evidence that he returned after 8.30am in uniform.

The witness stated that he was left in the property while she took her young children to school and nursery.

She said: “I trusted him and he was in full uniform and I had no reason to doubt him whatsoever – he was a policeman – I had full faith in the police.”

The woman stated she returned him at 9am and asked the officer if he was at the property in relation to the earlier matter.

She claimed she was told: “No, I came back to see you.”

The woman stated she told him that she had a boyfriend.

The officer is then said to have opened the door and tried to take her to the bedroom.

She said: “He was quite strong and I was a tiny wee thing at only seven stone – he was quite strong.

“He pulled me into him and tried to kiss me.

“Someone else, especially a policeman, putting their mouth on me is wrong – it’s completely wrong.

“I had phoned them to bring my daughter home and I got abused by a policeman – now I have no faith in the police system whatsoever.”

Following the alleged sexual assault, the woman said the officer left her his mobile phone number. 

The woman claimed that she split with her partner as a result of the incident.

She added: “That man has no idea what he did to my life.”

CCTV was shown to jurors in which the witness agreed displayed a man “jogging” away from her flat that morning.

The trial continues before Sheriff Joan Kerr.
