Police issue appeal as schoolboy with Portsmouth connections goes missing

Have your say

A MAN has been charged with breaking his dad’s leg in a sustained attack.

Josh Davies is alleged to have attacked Simon Davies, 43, in Hanover Street, Portsmouth, at 10.30pm on Friday, July 1.

Davies is accused of knocking his dad to the ground and repeatedly kicking him.

The 20-year-old, formerly of Wield Close, Havant, but now of no fixed address, did not enter a plea to the charge of assault causing grievous bodily harm with intent when he appeared at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

He spoke only to confirm his identity.

The magistrates released him on bail until October 31 when he is due to appear at Portsmouth Crown Court to enter a plea.

The conditions of Davies’ bail mean he cannot enter Portsea island and he must stay at a bail hostel in Milton Road, Southampton.

Davies will also have to report to Southampton central police station every day until his next court appearance.
