Man admits Carlisle park attack

A second man has admitted his part in an attack involving a couple in a park.

Antony Hext, of Chertsey Bank, Harraby, Carlisle, admitted assaulting a man after an incident in Melbourne Park, Botcherby.

A couple, a 30-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman, were set upon as they walked across the park last May.

At Carlisle Crown Court, Hext, 19, denied assault occasioning actual bodily harm but admitted common assault.

A second man, Grant Stewart, of Lindisfarne Street, off London Road, earlier admitted his involvement in the attack.

Judge Barbara Forrester adjourned the case until March 13 for reports.
