Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE -

A man has ap­peared in court ac­cused of at­tack­ing his al­leged vic­tim in a tower block flat.

Gary Grant ap­peared at Hamil­ton Sher­iff Court and de­nied both charges against him.

The of­fences are al­leged to have taken place in a flat in Glen Tower, Mother­well, on March 17 last year.

Grant is ac­cused of as­sault­ing a man by re­peat­edly punch­ing him on the head.

The 29-year-old also pleaded not guilty to dam­ag­ing prop­erty at the flat by throw­ing a plate at a liv­ing room win­dow.

It is al­leged that Grant com­mit­ted the of­fences while he was re­leased on bail.

De­spite his so­lic­i­tor’s best ef­forts, Sher­iff Vin­cent Smith de­cided to refuse Grant, of Woodburn Road, Dalkeith, bail. He was re­manded in cus­tody un­til his next court ap­pear­ance on April 16.

Grant is due to stand trial at Hamil­ton Sher­iff Court on April 23.
