A MAN from Holt has appeared in court charged with attacking another outside a Trowbridge toy shop.

Appearing before Swindon Magistrates’ Court this morning via the police station video link, Joshua James, 24, of Green Close, Holt, entered no pleas to a charge of wounding with intent.

The allegation is indictable only, meaning a charge can only be taken in the crown court.

The justices remanded him in custody. He is due before Swindon Crown Court for a plea hearing on Friday, October 30.

James’ arrest follows an assault on a man in his 20s near a toy shop in Castle Street, Trowbridge, on Saturday night.

A second man, in his 20s and from Trowbridge, arrested in connection with the alleged assault has been released under investigation by police detectives pending further enquiries.
