A Guisborough man appeared in court yesterday after an alleged incident in the town left a victim with a significant injury.
Stephen Petch, 36, from Wilson Street, was charged with grievous bodily harm with intent and possession of a knife, blade or sharply pointed article in a public place.
The charges have been made after an alleged incident in Guisborough on Friday December 4 which left a 24-year-old man with what police described as 'a significant injury to his arm.'
A large scale emergency response was sparked in the Kindlewood Gardens area of Guisborough, just off the town's main street, Westgate shortly after 11am that morning.
Police were at a house on Kindlewood, and a separate house on Wilson Street, with armed officers and the dog unit spotted in the area in the course of the day.
The exact nature of the man's injuries has not been revealed but he was taken to hospital for treatment.
The coastguard was called into action in our area at the weekend.
Just after 7pm on Sunday, the Redcar and Staithes Coastguard teams were tasked by the Humber operations room at Bridlington to an incident at Huntcliff in Saltburn.
However both teams were stood down whilst they were on route.
The public are being reminded that if you see anyone in trouble on the beach or cliffs you should dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
