Dated: 13 Feb 2012

Three people have been charged after an assault in Newcastle.

It follows an incident which happened on February 11, 2012, when two men assaulted a 43-year-old man by punching him in the face inside a flat at Rosedale Court.

And the previous weekend, on February 4, the same victim had a television stolen and was assaulted at a house in Etal Lane, resulting in a broken nose and wound to his eye, which required hospital treatment.

A 20-year-old man has been charged with grievous bodily harm, common assault, theft and criminal damage.

Another 20-year-old has been charged with common assault, theft and criminal damage, while a 19-year-old has been charged with theft.

All three are now going through the court process.
