A MAN has appeared in court charged with attempting to rape a boy at a children's home in Kenley more than four decades ago. 

Philip Collins, 68, is also accused of 16 counts of indecent assault against the same victim at Malvern House, Foxley Road, between 1968 and 1979. 

The boy was under the age of 14 at the time of the majority of the alleged offences.  

Collins, of Holly Court, Worcester Road, Sutton, appeared at Croydon Magistrates' Court today (Wednesday).

He spoke only to confirm his identity and did not enter a plea to any of the 17 charges. 

The alleged attempted rape occurred between 1972 and 1979. 

Collins was released on bail on the condition that he does not contact the victim or have unsupervised contact with any person under the age of 16. 

He is due to appear at Croydon Crown Court on October 15.

Malvern House children's home was run by Sutton Council and has since been converted into flats.
