THREE people have been charged with wounding man in a Warrington hotel.

It is alleged that the trio, who have each been named by the courts, did so with intent to do him grievous bodily harm.

The incident is reported to have occurred at Patten Arms Hotel, opposite Warrington Bank Quay train station, on Saturday.

A man was allegedly assaulted in the premises, with the assault also reported to have involved the use of weapons.

Callum Higgins, aged 21 and of Cross Lane in Leeds, Joshua Bednarek, aged 27 and of no fixed abode, but of Warrington, and Jordan Foster, aged 30 and of Livingstone Road in Bradford, have all been charged in connection with the incident.

Each faces charges of wounding with intent and false imprisonment.

The former charge alleges that the trio unlawfully and maliciously wounded the victim at Patten Arms Hotel on March 16 with intent to do grievous bodily harm.

The latter allegation is that they detailed the same male victim at the venue on the same day against his will.

Foster faces an additional charge of assault by beating on a woman on a nearby town centre street on the same day, March 16.

Each defendant made a first appearance in relation to the charges before Warrington Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

Here, each confirmed their identity, but no pleas were entered.

District Judge Boswell sent the case to Liverpool Crown Court for a plea and trial preparation hearing next month.

Bednarek and Foster were remanded in custody until this date, while Higgins was released on conditional bail.
