Statements from two women allegedly harassed by a man must be provided to his legal team within six weeks, a judge has ruled.

Philip Brown (45) is accused of pursuing the two women around a pharmacy and trying to take photographs of them under their dresses.

He is also alleged to have tried to record the women on his mobile phone.

The accused, of Warrenstown Walk in Blanchardstown, is charged with two counts of harassment at Boots Pharmacy in Blanchardstown on July 1 and July 3, 2015.

Mr Brown attempted to record and photograph the victims underneath their dress with his mobile phone, Sergeant Walter Sweeney previously alleged.

The alleged harassment was captured on CCTV cameras, the sergeant had told Blanchardstown District Court.

Valerie Buckley, the defence solicitor, said she had received CCTV images as well as a summary of the evidence, but statements from the alleged victims were outstanding.

Judge David McHugh ordered the disclosure of statements by a date in September.

Mr Brown has not yet indicated a plea to the charges.
