A TEENAGER has appeared at court charged with making threats to kill and causing actual bodily harm.
The 18-year-old was arrested at Granite Outdoor, the new shop in St Mary’s Place shopping centre, Harborough, on Wednesday, November 7, at about 12.45pm.
Jonathan Hickinbottom, of King Street, Desborough, appeared at Leicester Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday last week (November 14), charged with making threats to kill and causing actual bodily harm.
He was remanded in custody until December 13.
An eyewitness who was in the shop at the time said: “I was in the shop and saw a man arrested and taken by what I assume were members of the police tactical support unit – I saw their van parked in the town.”
