Accused man’s assault charges dropped



A SOUTH Tyneside man facing two charges of assault against the same woman had his case dismissed at court yesterday.

Kyle Haynes, of Sea Winnings Way, South Shields, had entered not guilty pleas to two counts of assault by beating at a hearing at South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court in January.

The offences were both alleged to have taken place on December 14 of last year.

The case against the 23-year-old was adjourned in January ahead of a trial date at the court yesterday.

But Ian Simpson, prosecuting, offered no evidence in the case.

Magistrates agreed to dismiss both charges.
