Tinder rapist Patrick Nevin has been remanded in custody pending sentencing for sexually assaulting a woman at the UCD campus at Belfield.

Nevin (36) was found guilty last November of sexually assaulting a Brazilian student.

The attack was the third he committed in 11 days.

Earlier this week, Nevin admitted before the Central Criminal Court to the rape of a woman at Bellewstown, Co Meath, on July 12, 2014.

He further admitted to the sexual assault of a woman in Co Meath on July 16, 2014.

Nevin, with a most recent address in Dún Laoghaire, appeared before Dublin Circuit Court yesterday.

Defence lawyers said Nevin was due for sentence before the Central Criminal Court on similar matters on July 26.

Some reports, including a forensic psychiatrist's report, had been ordered, and would help in sentencing.

Judge Cormac Quinn adjourned sentencing on the UCD sexual assault to July 30.
