Colonel accused of sexually assaulting woman by touching her bum with his foot

AN Army officer is ac­cused of sexually assaulting a woman by touching her bum with his foot.

Colonel Martin Toney admits contact at a court martial but says it was accidental, not sexual.

His lawyer David Richards told a hearing in Catterick, North Yorks: “He went to get her attention with his foot and it connected with her backside, not deliberately.”

The woman reported the alleged assault on January 29, 2020. Where it happened was not said.

Col Toney, who has spent 36 years in the Army, was based in Glasgow at the time. 

He is a multi-agency Gold Incident Comm­ander so can take charge of terror-level incidents. 

The allegation will next be considered in June.
