Posted on in News stories

Police have charged a 25-year-old Catterick man with attempted murder.

It follows an incident that occurred in Little Holtby in the early hours of Sunday 1 December 2019 when a 43 year-old Northallerton man sustained critical injuries.

Police are appealing to anyone who has any information about the incident and has not already spoken to the police, to contact them.

In particular, they would like to trace a man and woman who left Club Amadeus in Northallerton at around 3am to get a taxi. As they climbed into the back of their taxi they were joined by another man who sat in the front passenger seat.

Officers believe that the taxi first stopped in the Elm Avenue junction with Elm Court area of Northallerton before continuing to Little Holtby and that the couple may have vital information that could assist the investigation.

The suspect was remanded in custody following his arrest on 1 December and is due to appear in court on Monday 2 December 2019.
