Two men charged with robbing and assaulting a 67-year-old man in Ely have been remanded in custody by a judge.

Lee Jones, 32, of Skegness Road, Stevenage, and Sebastian Yellowe, 22, of Langthorne Avenue, Stevenage, appeared at Cambridge Crown Court on Friday, charged with robbery and causing grievous bodily harm.

It is alleged that the pair robbed and attacked the man on October 23 as he walked through Ely’s Cherry Hill Park, off Broad Street.

He suffered serious facial injuries in the attack and was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge, for treatment.

It is understood that the man, from Ely, is the parent of a pupil at King’s Ely.
