THE teenager charged in connection with an attack which left a York man in critical condition has been released on bail.
William Wilson Allan, 18, of Kempton Close, Acomb, appeared before York Magistrates’ Court on Monday, charged with wounding with intent to commit grievous bodily harm.
Allan was charged in connection with the assault in Melrosegate in the early hours of Thursday, September 5, which left 51-year-old Anthony Lansbury with serious head injuries.
On Monday, magistrates remanded Allan in custody until his next court appearance on Monday, September 23, but he was yesterday released on conditional bail until that date at a hearing before Recorder Tahir Khan QC at York Crown Court.
