A SAUNDERSFOOT man is to stand trial accused of inflicting “very serious injuries.”

James Robert Toulouse, 23, of Bonvilles Close, admitted causing grievous bodily harm to Rory Robert Rogers on November 16 last year.

He denied a more serious charge of causing GBH with intent.

Jim Davis, prosecuting, told Swansea crown court the pleas were not acceptable and a trial would be necessary.

Another Saundersfoot man, Jason McReynolds, 20, of Ridgeway Close, appeared in connection with the same incident.

He denied that between November 15 and November 17 he did acts intended to pervert the course of justice by arranging for Toulouse to be taken from the scene of the assault and by making an untrue witness statement.

Mr Davis said the prosecution maintained that the attack on Mr Rogers had involved kicking.

“It was a particularly serious incident. The injuries were very serious indeed,” he added.

A trial will begin on April 8. Toulouse was further remanded in custody and McReynolds was granted bail.
