Three people have appeared in court in connection with an alleged stabbing in Scarborough.

Marc Todd, 31, and Stacey Price, 21, of Keilia Court, Wooler Street and John Swann, 37, of North Marine Road, all stood before Scarborough Magistrates’ Court on Friday March 28, charged with unlawful and malicious wounding.

Swann was also charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm relating to a separate alleged victim.

None of the defendants entered a plea, and the case was referred to York Crown Court, to be heard on April 11.

All three were detained by police after a 31-year-old man was allegedly stabbed at an address in Norwood Street in the early hours of Friday morning.

The victim received a total of nine wounds; six to his back, one to his chest, one to his cheek and another to his buttocks. He also suffered two collapsed lungs as a result of the attack.

The man was able to make his way to Scarborough Police Station following the incident where he presented his injuries to police officers at approximately 12.40am.

He was rushed to hospital where he remains.

The full extent of his condition is currently unknown, although the court heard that he was “clearly very unwell” following the incident.

The court also heard that the victim had managed to give a brief statement to police.

The three defendants were remanded in custody until the next hearing.
