Two men have been remanded in custody after appearing in court charged over a violent assault of a shop worker.
The victim was allegedly punched to the floor, kicked in the face, and had his head stamped on following an altercation with two men in Newcastle Avenue, Worksop.
The incident happened shortly after 7pm on Monday 22 January 2024.
Thanks to quick work by the Worksop neighbourhood policing team, they arrested a suspect within 25 minutes of the reported assault. A second suspect was subsequently detained after further inquiries.
Items were reportedly stolen from the store the victim works at following the alleged assault.
Adam Seward, aged 37, and Justin Slack, aged 23, both of Worksop, appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday 24 January 2024.
Seward was charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent and possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.
Slack was charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent, burglary, and theft.
Both were remanded in custody and are next due to appear at Nottingham Crown Court on 21 February 2024.
Inspector Hayley Crawford, District Commander for Bassetlaw, said: “This was a nasty assault and I hope our response in locating, arresting, and charging these suspects provides reassurance to the community that we will always investigate serious crimes of this nature and put suspects before the court at the earliest opportunity.”
