A STROUD teenager has been sent for jury trial accused of robbing a man and assaulting two other people, one of them seriously.

At Cheltenham Magistrates Court on September 18 the justices directed trial at Gloucester Crown Court for Liam Ross, 18, of Moseley Road, Cainscross.

He is charged with stealing £5 from a man, assaulting a woman causing actual bodily harm, and causing grievous bodily harm with intent to a man.

All the offences are said to have been committed on October 26 last year in Stroud.

The magistrates said that because all the charges are indictable only they can only be dealt with at crown court level.

Ross was granted unconditional bail pending his first appearance before Gloucester Crown Court on October 16.
