A Hawick teenager accused of sexually assaulting four females with a pool cue has had his trial adjourned until August 7 at the request of the crown.
The 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is charged with striking them between the legs with the pool cue.
He faces a fifth charge of assaulting one of the females by grabbing her around the neck in a headlock and pulling her onto his bed.
All those offences are alleged to have been committed at a house in Burnfoot in Hawick between June 1 and November 11.
The teenager has pleaded not guilty at Jedburgh Sheriff Court to all five charges.
An intermediate hearing will take place on July 9.
