Attempted murder charge for teenager

A TEENAGER is to appear at crown court tomorrow to face a charge of attempted murder.

Ryan James Sutton, 18, is also charged with possession of an offensive weapon.

The charges relate to an incident at Weighbridge Close, in Kirkbymoorside, on Monday April 30.

He appeared at Scarborough Magistrates’ Court last Wednesday for a brief hearing.

He did not enter a plea before the court, and spoke only to confirm his name and address.

The case was adjourned until tomorrow when Sutton, who was remanded in custody, is due to appear at Leeds Crown Court.
