A 64-year-old man from Downham has appeared in court charged with a child sex offence.
Hussein Elhaj, of Wingfields, is accused of inciting sexual activity with a girl under 13 in Downham between July 7, 2016 and January 29, 2018.
He is further charged with treating a child in a manner likely to cause her unnecessary suffering or injury to health between the same dates.
Elhaj pleaded not guilty to both offences when he appeared before magistrates in Lynn on Monday.
He was bailed to appear at Norwich Crown Court on July 8.
