A 29-year-old man who assaulted a woman in January has been remanded in custody by a judge.

Tyrone O’Neill pleaded guilty to assault by beating when he appeared at Swindon Crown Court.

But he denied two counts of breaching a restraining order imposed by magistrates last summer.

Recorder Ed Burgess QC adjourned the case to Friday April 6 and remanded O’Neill, of Maitland Road, Walcot, in custody until then.
