A TRIAL date has been set for a teenager who is accused of a series of offences including threatening behaviour, assault, theft and criminal damage.

Ben Harding, of Hartingdon Drive, Honeywell, denies allegedly threatening Stephen Hirst, assaulting Hayden Scott and damaging a Volkswagen Up, all on October 8 and two counts of theft from Asda, on Old Mill Lane, a week later.

Prosecutors claim the 18-year-old stole three boxes of Celebrations and two bottles of Pepsi on October 15.

The youngster was granted bail and will next appear for trial at Barnsley Magistrates’ Court on July 16.
