Four men will stand trial later this month accused of holding a gun to a man’s head in Dundee.
Christopher McIntosh, 36, Rory Starkey, 22, Darren Thomson, 27, and Michael McIntosh, 32, denied two charges at Dundee Sheriff Court.
The men deny that between December 25 last year and January 24, in various locations in Tayside, they behaved in a threatening or abusive manner by repeatedly sending messages of a threatening nature to Reace Stewart and repeatedly calling him and uttered threats.
They also deny that at Strathmartine Road, on January 24, they assaulted Mr Stewart by seizing his arms, kicking him on the body causing him to fall to the ground, repeatedly uttering threats of violence, presenting a firearm and placing it under his chin – said to be aggravated by a connection with serious, organised crime.
Claire McIntosh, 33, of Prosen Road, Kirriemuir, denies that on January 24, near to the junction of Strathmartine Road and Harcourt Street, she shouted at Mr Stewart, followed and chased after him and drove a car towards him at speed.
She also denies, along with Christopher McIntosh, that between December 25 and January 24, at Prosen Road, Kirriemuir, and elsewhere in Dundee, she was concerned in the supply of heroin, a Class A drug, which was allegedly aggravated by a connection with serious, organised crime.
