Former Surrey Police detective faces sex offence charges

A former Surrey Police detective has been charged with two sex offences dating back to 1991.

John Charles Erskine, 70, of Caterham, is accused of indecently assaulting a woman over the age of 16.

The alleged offences took place in the Redhill area while Mr Erskine was working as a detective inspector in Surrey, a force spokeswoman said.

The allegations arise out of an investigation following claims that were made in 2014.

Mr Erskine was charged after consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, she added.

He is due to appear at Guildford Magistrates' Court on Tuesday.
