A man, who allegedly tried to enter a woman’s apartment after soliciting sex from her, has denied the allegations made against him.

Olis John this week also pleaded not guilty to disorderly conduct in a police station, and using indecent language.

He will face trial on May 10 when he returns before Magistrate Ayanna Baptiste-DaBreo.

Allegations are that, on April 17 last year, the complainant was babysitting at a residence in Free Bottom when the accused beckoned to her from outside the property.

He allegedly tried to offer her $200 to have sex with him. The woman reportedly ignored him.

John subsequently tried to enter the woman’s apartment, the court heard.

It is further alleged that the woman threw a bottle of water at him in an attempt to stop him from entering.

That only infuriated the accused, prosecutors claimed.

“I will kill everyone inside the house,” John allegedly told the woman.

The woman, who the court heard became fearful, reported the matter to the police.

Law enforcement officers subsequently visited John at his residence, which also is in Free Bottom.

When the police approached him, the accused allegedly told them: “I don’t know why ayo f&$##g come knocking on my door. Why all you believing the f$#$g Spanish woman?”

Police said John was warned against using such language while addressing them.

But he allegedly went on to say: “F&^%$k the police. I did nothing.”

John was taken to the Road Town Police Station.

While there, he allegedly became disorderly.

He was then charged.

Other case

Meanwhile, John is also before the court in relation to another incident that took place in 2015 at Sea Cows Bay, Tortola.

Following that incident, he was charged with assault on police, being armed with an offensive weapon, disorderly conduct, and using indecent language.

He pleaded not guilty to each of those charges, and was granted $50,000 signed bail when he last appeared in court.

It is alleged that John hit a cop with a beer bottle when the officer responded to reports of a disturbance at a bar in Sea Cows Bay.
