A MAN facing a double assault charge is set to stand trial.
Byron Brown is accused of assaults on two women on August 7.
He also charged with causing criminal damage – to a telephone valued at £20 – on the same date.
The 24-year-old entered not guilty pleas to all three charges at South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
Brown, of Brisbane Avenue, South Shields, will be back at the court for his trial date on October 14.
He was granted bail until that date.
