A man has appeared in court following an alleged serious assault which led to another man being taken to Raigmore Hospital at the weekend.

Police Scotland said officers were called to a property in Ardness Place, Inverness at around 5.30pm on Saturday to reports that a man had been injured following a disturbance.

A police spokesperson said: “The injured man was taken by ambulance to Raigmore Hospital." It is believed he has now been released.

At Inverness Sheriff Court today, 37-year-old Brian Peach, from Inverness, appeared in private before Sheriff David Harvie on a charge of attempted murder and possession of an offensive weapon.

The charges read: "On January 6 at 23 Ardness Place, you assaulted Ross McQuade and did strike him to the neck with a bottle to his severe injury, permanent disfigurement and to the danger of his life and did attempt to murder him."

The second charge alleges that at the same time and place Peach had in his possession a knuckleduster with an attached bladed article.

He was represented by Glasgow solicitor Mary Ellen Scobbie and made no plea.

Peach was committed for further examination and remanded in custody.
