THREE men have appeared in court charged with taking part in a serious assault.
Kevin Tiernan, 44, Daniel Tiernan, 19, and Craig Tiernan, 22, from Hetton, were not asked to enter pleas to charges of malicious wounding when they appeared at Sunderland Magistrates’ Court.
The three, who all live at Coronation Terrace, are also accused of possession of an offensive weapon, following the alleged attack on July 29.
They were granted conditional bail and ordered not to contact or interfere with prosecution witnesses, or to enter the Peat Car estate in Hetton.
All three men will appear again before a judge at Newcastle Crown Court next month.
