Three Edinburgh men have denied conspiring with each other to assault another man in May.
Sam Enwood, 27, of Kingsknowe Court, Calum Inglis, 34, described as a prisoner at HMP Edinburgh, and Dale Turner, 35, of Piershill Square West, all appeared on indictment before Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court facing a charge of conspiracy.
All three deny conspiring on various occasions between May 23 and 25 this year at Crosbie’s Court in Stirling to assault Brian Perrie and equipping themselves with a hammer, balaclavas, gloves and a wooden truncheon.
Enwood also faces two charges that he was in possession of a hammer and a wooden truncheon in Main Street, Cairneyhill, on May 25 of this year.
Solicitors Alistair Burleigh, Liam Kildare and James Grant, acting for Enwood, Inglis and Turner respectively, all tendered not guilty pleas on behalf of their clients before Sheriff James Williamson at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court.
The case has been continued until February 2 to determine the Crown’s and defence team’s readiness for trial.
