Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE - Ross Thom­son

Three women and a man will stand trial later this sum­mer ac­cused of a num­ber of al­leged crimes against them.

Kirsty Tobin, Leanne Camp­bell, Joanne Lang­ford and Mark Bex­ley will stand trial at Hamilton Sher­iff Court on Au­gust 8 in re­la­tion to the al­leged of­fences.

All four deny all the charges against them which all took place on Au­gust 26 last year.

Tobin, of Stan­hope Place, Wishaw, and Camp­bell, of Nether­wood Tower, Mother­well, are ac­cused of en­gag­ing in a fight in Wishaw’s Heath­field.

Tobin, 27, is also ac­cused of as­sault­ing Me­gan Cooper in the same street by seiz­ing her by the neck and pin­ning her against a door.

Mean­while, at the Nisa store in Smith Av­enue, Wishaw, on Au­gust 26 23-year-old Camp­bell al­legedly stole a num­ber of food items.

At the same store, 29-year-old Lang­ford, of Heath­field, Wishaw, al­legedly as­saulted Scott Smith by strik­ing him on the body with her shoul­der.

Camp­bell, Lang­ford and 19-yearold Bex­ley, also of Stan­hope Place, al­legedly as­saulted Mr Smith again by pur­su­ing him, re­peat­edly punch­ing him on the head and body, re­peat­edly strik­ing him on the shoul­der, at­tempt­ing to kick him and re­peat­edly push­ing him on the body.

The fi­nal charge is an al­le­ga­tion that Camp­bell and Lang­ford be­haved in a threat­en­ing man­ner in Smith Av­enue by act­ing ag­gres­sively and shout­ing and swear­ing at Mr Smith.
