TWO men and a woman from Hawick made a private court appearance today charged with assaulting and robbing a male victim.

Twenty year old Robert Searle and Stephen Scott, who is 30, appeared alongside 18-year-old Chelsea Gillon, who are also accused of assault and a firearms offence.

They made no plea or declaration during a brief hearing at Selkirk Sheriff Court and the case was continued for examination.

All three were granted bail pending their next court appearance which has still to be confirmed.

It follows an incident at a flat in Oliver Crescent in Hawick’s town centre on Monday morning.

The street was sealed off by armed police officers during the incident.
