A woman who visited a loved one at a cemetery, was brutally attacked by a young man, police in the United Kingdom said.

Now, the 22-year-old man has appeared in court on charges of rape after the woman was subjected to a serious sexual assault in the cemetery of the St. Nicolas Church, Kings Norton, on Saturday night.

Michael James Ware of Shenley Fields Drive in Northfield, Birmingham, was charged with two counts of rape on a woman and one count of assault by penetration.

The unemployed man was also charged with possessing a firearm and possessing an offensive weapon in a public place.

He appeared before the Birmingham Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday, where he was remanded into custody after being denied bail.
