Hearing over assault charge

Have your say

A HOLBEACH man accused of assaulting a 15-year-old boy will appear in court in Spalding today.

Adam Bishop (28), of Lawyer’s Close, allegedly punched and kicked the teenager once during an incident in Barrington Gate, Holbeach, on June 20.

At a hearing at Spalding Magistrates’ Court last Thursday, Bishop pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Magistrates adjourned proceedings until today, when they are expected to decide which court the case will be heard in.

The alleged teenage victim can not be named for legal reasons.
