A WICK man is alleged to have cleaned potential evidence after committing a serious assault.

Anthony Robertson (28) was charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice by washing a pair of trainers in a washing machine, Wick Sheriff Court was told on Tuesday.

He pleaded not guilty, on indictment, and also denied assaulting Liam Long by repeatedly striking him on the head with a knife or similar weapon and repeatedly kicking him, and repeatedly stamping on him.

The incident is said to have taken place at a house in Barrogill Street, Wick, on May 29 last year.

Once the prosecution and defence are fully prepared, the case will be transferred to Inverness Sheriff Court for a trial by jury. All indictment trials are being held in the Highland capital during special arrangements under the current pandemic.

Robertson, of Bremners' Walk, Wick, also pleaded not guilty to additional, unrelated, charges of possessing cannabis and cannabis resin.
