A man is accused of raping two women in a van in Aberdeen and forcing one into a number of degrading actions.
Jordan Greig faced the accusations as he appeared via video-link at the High Court in Glasgow today.
The 21 year-old allegedly pounced on the first woman in Links Road, Aberdeen, on March 9 this year.
It is claimed he initially brandished a machete and robbed her before carrying out the sex attack.
The rape charge includes claims he stopped her leaving a van and did “compel her to bark” as well as call him “sir” and “master”.
The second attack allegedly occurred on March 22 in a car park at the Esplanade in Aberdeen.
Greig is also said to have presented a machete and stole money from this woman.
It is claimed during the rape, he made her bark, scream and lick the sole of her shoe.
Greig faces a further charge of slapping a third woman on the same day.
Louise Arrol, defending, issued not guilty pleas on his behalf to the accusations.
No trial was set. Lady Stacey instead fixed a further hearing for later this month.
