A TEENAGER appeared in court yesterday charged in connection with an assault in St Helier which left a man seriously ill in a UK hospital.

Joseph Ross Jordan (19), originally from Glasgow but whose most recent address was in Norfolk, is accused of being involved in a fight in Lilly’s Mini Market in La Motte Street on Thursday evening.

He has been charged with one count of grave and criminal assault.

Two other men were arrested but have not been charged, and the police are appealing for information about another man wanted in connection with the assault.

The alleged victim was taken to hospital in a critical condition before being transferred to Southampton Hospital.

His condition was yesterday described as “stable”.

Assistant Magistrate Adam Clarke ruled that the matter was too serious to be heard by the Magistrate’s Court and committed the case to Royal Court.

Mr Jordan was remanded in custody and is due to appear in the higher court on Friday 5 July.

The States police said that they were aware of phone camera footage being circulated, but requested that anyone with dashcam or other footage taken around La Motte Street at that time come forward.

Anyone with any information should contact the States police on 612612 or make an anonymous report via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 or at crimestoppers-uk.org.
