A 22-year-old man accused of indecently assaulting two schoolboys bombarded one of them with 321 mobile telephone calls over a period of two months, it was alleged yesterday.

A 22-year-old man accused of indecently assaulting two schoolboys bombarded one of them with 321 mobile telephone calls over a period of two months, it was alleged yesterday.

David Miller ran up a £236 phone bill but later denied being obsessed with the boy, Ipswich Crown Court heard.

Miller, of Packard Avenue, Bramford has denied two offences of indecent assault and two offences of indecency with two boys aged between eight and 13.

Hugh Vass, prosecuting, said that Miller had befriended the boys and had bought one of them a mobile phone and sweets.

On one occasion Miller had allegedly indecently assaulted one of the boys while they were lying in Miller's bed.

On another occasion he had allegedly indecently exposed himself to the second boy and asked him to do the same, said Mr Vass.

The court heard that Miller allegedly told someone he knew that he had woken up in his bed to find himself indecently touching one of the boys but claimed he had done it in a dream.

Mr Vass said that Miller did not accept that this conversation had taken place.

After his arrest Miller denied being obsessed with the boy he had bought a mobile phone for.

He said he had fallen out with the boy after he refused to take him to the pub with him.

He denied indecently touching either of the boys or indecently exposing himself.

Mr Vass said the two boys had known each other and the jury would have to decide if they were telling the truth or had put their heads together and invented the allegations.

The trial continues.
