Man in court over in­ci­dent at pub

The Scarborough News - - WELCOME TO YOUR NEWS -

A man has ap­peared at York Crown Court charged with wound­ing fol­low­ing an in­ci­dent at a Scar­bor­ough pub in which a 26-year-old man was in­jured.

Lee Hamil­ton, 28, of Pavilion Square, Scar­bor­ough, did not en­ter a plea to the charge when he ap­peared at Crown Court via video link on Mon­day.

Crown prose­cu­tor Al­isha Kaye said the vic­tim suf­fered three sep­a­rate wounds to the stom­ach and arm dur­ing the in­ci­dent at the West Rid­ing pub in Cas­tle Road just be­fore 8pm on Jan­uary 21.

The main wound was to the stom­ach and there were two su­per­fi­cial wounds to the vic­tim’s arm, she added.

Ms Kaye said the Crown Pros­e­cu­tion Ser­vice was await­ing con­fir­ma­tion as to whether the mi­nor wounds to the arm had been caused by de­lib­er­ate stab­bing or the vic­tim be­ing ac­ci­den­tally caught with the knife.

The re­sults of th­ese en­quiries would de­ter­mine the ex­act charges lev­elled against Hamil­ton.

Judge An­drew Stubbs QC ad­journed the case to April 3 and or­dered a psy­cho­log­i­cal re­port on Hamil­ton, who was re­manded in Hull Prison.
