Accused Hey Dad star a "dirty old man" court hears

THE sexual assault trial against former Hey Dad! star Robert Hughes has heard an alleged victim was warned that he was a "dirty old man".

A female witness, who claims Hughes exposed himself to her in a dressing room on one occasion and "pinned" her down and grabbed her "all over" on another, said that when she told a colleague of the alleged abuse, she tried to "make a joke of it".

She said the colleague had said "he's just a dirty old man" and warned her not to go near him," the Herald reported

Hughes has pleaded not guilty 11 charged related to the alleged assault of several females in the 80s.

The trial is expected to run for at least another week.
