Two Hampshire teenagers have pleaded not guilty to attacking a man who has been left fighting for his life after he was allegedly set upon for asking a group of people to stop making noise outside his flat.
At Portsmouth Crown Court, Samuel Armstrong, 18, and Brandon Fisher, 18, both from Gosport, denied a charge of assault causing grievous bodily harm against Andrew Toseland. The 49-year-old has been in a serious condition in hospital since the incident on August 25 last year in Forton Road, Gosport.
The two teenagers are to stand trial on April 15. A third defendant, a 16-year-old boy, had his case dismissed by Judge Roger Hetherington. The Independent Police Complaints Commission is investigating how Hampshire police dealt with complaints of previous anti-social behaviour at the flats.
