Wishaw Press - - COURT CASE -

A man has ap­peared in court ac­cused of as­sault­ing a 13-year-old boy at a park.

David Cooper de­nied the as­sault charge against him when he ap­peared in the dock at Hamil­ton Sher­iff Court last week.

It is al­leged 35-year-old Cooper, of Kirk Street, Mother­well, shouted at the boy be­fore head-butting him.

The in­ci­dent is al­leged to have taken place at the Duchess of Hamil­ton Park in Avon Street, Mother­well, on Septem­ber 30.

Cooper was granted bail in the case but with a spe­cial con­di­tion that he does con­tact the boy.

He will re­turn to court on De­cem­ber 20 for a fur­ther hear­ing in the case.

He is due to stand trial at Hamil­ton Sher­iff Court on Jan­uary 17.
