Four teenagers are due in court to face allegations of grievous bodily harm following a serious assault in Petersfield earlier this year.

Thomas Denham, 19, of Guildford Road, Pirbright, Woking, and Ben Hughes, also 19, of London Road, Waterlooville will both face charges of grievous bodily harm with intent.

Louis Ridge-Mullen, 18, of Osborne Road, Petersfield and Jenson Rowley, 19 of Geddes Way, Petersfield will both face charges of grievous bodily harm with intent and assault by beating.

It comes after a man in his 20s was assaulted by a group of men in Chapel Street, Petersfield, at around 1.30am on Saturday, April 9.

The victim sustained a serious head injury during the assault and was taken to hospital. He has since been discharged.

All four men are due to appear at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court on Friday, October 21.
