Man accused of holding woman prisoner in Carlisle

A man is to go on trial accused of holding a young woman prisoner in Carlisle.

Christopher Gunn, 27, of Buckle Avenue, Cleator Moor, pleaded not guilty at Carlisle Crown Court to falsely imprisoning Toni Marie Armstrong.

The charge alleges that between February 1 and 4 this year he "unlawfully and injuriously imprisoned Toni Marie Armstrong and detained her against her will at Haig Road, Carlisle."

He also denied causing Ms Armstrong actual bodily harm in an incident on February 3, but admitted damaging her mobile phone’s SIM card.

Gunn was remanded in custody until the week of June 9, when he will go on trial over two days.
