Carlisle man charged with GBH

A 20-year-old man is to appear before a judge at Carlisle Crown Court accused of an assault which left another man with a fractured skull.

Ryan Scott, of Halla Way, Belah, Carlisle, entered no plea to a charge that he inflicted grievous bodily harm on a man named in court as Arron Elliott on Friday April 18.

Nor did he plead to a second charge that he made off without paying a taxi fare of £9.35 on the same date.

Magistrates in Carlisle were told that the injured man was taken to the Cumberland Infirmary and then transferred to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Newcastle, where he was treated for a skull fracture and bruising on the brain.

Scott’s case was committed to the Crown Court for a hearing on Monday September 22, when the defendant is likely to enter pleas to the allegations.
