The son of a fashion tycoon gunned down in a notorious murder in The Bishops Avenue has denied drunkenly groping three female employees.

The court heard how he allegedly groped one woman, squeezing her bottom and forcibly kissing her. He is accused of sticking his tongue down the throat of a second woman.
In the most serious assault he allegedly touched the breasts of a third woman and kissed her and on a later occasion, forced his fingers inside her vagina.
