A LOWESTOFT man accused of sexually abusing a seven-year-old girl has denied the allegations.

Giving evidence at Ipswich Crown Court Maxwell Goldwyn, 51, denied making the girl perform sex acts on him. He also denied showing her porn on his computer.

Goldwyn, of Dukes Head Street, Lowestoft has denied three offences of indecently assaulting the girl and three offences of indecency with a child. He is alleged to have got the girl to perform sex acts on him.

Goldwyn told the jury that on one occasion the girl had walked into his flat while he was masturbating and he had mentioned the “embarrassing incident” to her mother several weeks later.

He denied a suggestion from prosecution counsel Matthew McNiff that the incident had been a test to see if the girl was someone he could abuse.

“You knew this was a child vulnerable to abuse?” said Mr McNiff. To which Goldwyn replied: “No.”

The trial continues today
