Two Barrow men remanded in custody following GBH charges

TWO Barrow men have had their cases sent to the crown court following an incident which left a 24-year-old with serious injuries.

Scott Dobson, 31, of Collingwood Street, Barrow, and Christopher Purcell, 30, of Vulcan Road, Barrow, appeared before Furness Magistrates' Court this morning.

Both men were arrested over the weekend and charged with grievous bodily harm with intent.

Neither entered a plea in court and were remanded in custody. 

They will next appear before Preston Crown Court on April 15. 

The incident happened at around 5pm on Friday at a property in the Marsh Street area, Barrow.

The victim, a local man, is still in hospital in a stable condition.

Police would like to thank the public for their assistance with their enquires, and offer reassurance that this was not a random attack.

Anyone who may have some information about the incident is asked to contact Barrow CID on 101. Any information will be treated in the strictest confidence.
