TWO Greenock teenagers charged with attacking a woman and a man in the street and leaving them permanently impaired have maintained pleas of not guilty at the sheriff court.

Brady McKenzie and Alexander Brogan, both 18, are accused of carrying out the serious assaults whilst acting with another person, whose identity is meantime unknown, in December 2018.

Prosecutors say they pushed the woman to the ground before repeatedly punching and kicking her to her severe injury and permanent impairment on Roxburgh Street.

It's further alleged they knocked the man to the ground and then repeatedly punched and kicked him on the head and body, leaving him severely injured, permanently disfigured and permanently impaired.

The accused pair are also charged with kicking a second man on the head.

McKenzie and Brogan, both of Inverkip Road, had not guilty pleas continued in their excused absence from Greenock Sheriff Court by lawyers Aidan Gallagher and Gerry Keenan.

A further hearing has been set for November 9.
