A MAN has appeared in court to deny claims that he assaulted a woman.

Jon Ross Edwards, 21, is alleged to have beat a woman and damaged a microwave belonging to her.

He is also alleged to have caused harassment to the woman by breaching a restraining order she has against him.

Edwards, of Market Street, in Hetton, who was represented by defence solicitor Jason Smith, pleaded not guilty to all three charges during a short hearing at Sunderland Magistrates’ Court.

He was granted conditional bail by district judge Roger Elsey.

Edwards will be back in court on Wednesday, April 22.
