Man extradited from Northern Ireland for sexual assault trial in Austria

The man was detained by PSNI in September last year.

A 40-year-old man has been extradited from Northern Ireland to Austria where he is wanted for trial for a serious sexual assault offence.

He was originally arrested by officers on a European Arrest Warrant in Newtownards on Monday 28 September 2015.

He has been on remand in the region until his extradition on Tuesday night. The alleged offence took place in Austria in 2000.

A date for the trial has yet to be set, a police spokesman added.
