A MAN accused of wielding a knife when he broke into a Wearside home will have his case heard at crown court.

Kevin Imre Ord was at Sunderland Magistrates’ Court yesterday facing a charge of aggravated burglary.

The 31-year-old allegedly went into a house in Grizedale, Washington, armed with a knife, just after 11.50pm on Friday.

Ord, of Compton Court, Oxclose, Washington, did not enter a plea, and the case was sent to Newcastle Crown Court.

He will appear there on December 23, and magistrates remanded him in custody until then.
