Man faces two assault charges

A SCARBOROUGH man has been remanded in custody on two assault charges.

Ian Leybourn, 26, of Westway, Eastfield, appeared before Scarborough magistrates in custody charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and assault by beating.

At a previous hearing on January 14 magistrates had directed a county court trial and adjourned the matter.

Solicitor Nick Tubbs made an application for bail on behalf of his client, but this was refused.

Leybourn is due back at Scarborough Magistrates’ Court on February 25 for committal proceedings.
