Lancashire Telegraph: Mark Leslie Dallison Mark Leslie Dallison

A MAN has gone on trial at Burnley Crown Court accused of sex offences involving a teenage girl and boy.

Mark Leslie Dallison, 44, is accused of six offences of rape and three charges of sexual activity with a child.

He has denied all nine charges, which are alleged to have taken place between January 2008 and late 2010.

Three rapes are said to involve the teenage girl and a further three rapes are alleged to involve the young boy.

Interviewed by specialist officers on video, the alleged male victim said Dallison had tried to make him watch a ‘dirty video’ before groping him.

He told a jury that he tried to escape, as Dallison ‘felt him up’, but he was unable to move.

Dallison, of Melville Avenue, Barnoldswick, was also accused of performing oral sex on the boy, who was aged only 12 or 13 at the time, the court heard, during the same incident.

The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has also accused Dallison of raping him at least twice.

Describing one of the alleged rapes, he told a jury that he had begged Dallison to stop, because he was hurting him, but he continued. The ordeal was said to have lasted for 15 minutes.

Dallison’s lawyers have said that all of the allegations against him are untrue and the alleged victims have a vendetta against him.

The trial continues.
