Teenagers remanded over Tyne and Wear police attack
Friday 19 August 2011
Two teenagers appeared before a judge today after a police station was attacked with petrol bombs and a patrol car was torched.
Glass was shattered at Washington police station in Tyne and Wear, injuring a police officer who came out to investigate in the early hours of Wednesday morning last week.
The attack, which Northumbria Police described as "isolated", caused £12,000 of damage.
Jamie Joseph Henry Nolan, 18, and a 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared at Newcastle Crown Court charged with violent disorder.
Nolan, of The Poplars, Biddick, Tyne and Wear, is also accused of attempting to pervert the course of justice.
Neither entered pleas during the short hearing.
Nolan is due back before the court for a plea and directions hearing on October 28 and was remanded in custody until then.
A provisional date for his trial was set for January 9 next year.
The younger defendant's case was referred to Sunderland Magistrates' Court, on a date to be arranged. He was also remanded in custody.
