A man accused of sexually assaulting two women in White Rock six years ago is to be tried on the charges in New Westminster next June.

Following a preliminary hearing in Surrey Provincial Court, Jason Andrew Robinson was ordered in July to stand trial in B.C. Supreme Court.

The trial dates were set Sept. 24. Prosecutor Winston Sayson confirmed Tuesday that the case will be heard by judge alone. A pre-trial conference has been scheduled for April 28.

According to court records, the alleged assaults occurred on Aug. 3 and Aug. 31 of 2007. The victims – aged 25 and 33 at the time – told police they had been sexually assaulted at a White Rock residence by an acquaintance.

An arrest warrant was first issued that same year, however, difficulties locating the accused stymied the proceedings.

The trial is set for June 2-6, 2014.
