TWO teenagers have been charged with carrying out a brace of serious assaults in Greenock — one of which is said to have left a man permanently impaired.

Brady McKenzie, 18, and a 17-year-old youth, are accused of committing the alleged attacks at the town's Roxburgh Street in December 2018.

Prosecutors say the pair pushed a woman to the ground before punching and kicking her on the body to severe injury and permanent disfigurement.

McKenzie, of Inverkip Road, and his co-accused are then said to have knocked the alleged male victim to the ground before kicking him on the head and body to severe injury, permanent disfigurement and permanent impairment.

The Crown says that they were acting with another person who is meantime unknown at the time of the alleged attacks.

McKenzie and the youth, who can't be identified for legal reasons, have maintained pleas of not guilty at the sheriff court through lawyers Aidan Gallagher and Gerry Keenan.

A further calling of the case, ahead of a sheriff and jury trial, is due to take place on February 2.
