Two men facing allegations of false imprisonment will face Crown Court proceedings.

The pair are also accused of robbing a man of his bank card and pin number.

Peter Klasovsky, 35, of Tavanagh Gardens in Portadown, and Artue Majdzinski, 26, of Enniskeen in Craigavon, appeared for the purpose a preliminary enquiry at Craigavon Magistrates’, sitting at Lisburn, on Friday.

Both men face charges of grievous bodily harm with intent, false imprisonment, robbery and theft.

The alleged offences occurred on January 28, of this year.

Klasovsky and Majdzinski are accused of unlawfully and injuriously imprisoning a male to whom they caused grievous bodily harm.

They are also alleged to have stolen two bags of personal possessions, mostly electronic equipment, to the value of £990, and to have robbed the same individual of his bank card and pin number.

Appearing via videolink from Maghaberry, both defendants made no objection to the holding of a preliminary enquiry.

Defence barrister Aaron Thompson, who represented Klasovsky, and solicitor Sinead Willox, who appeared for the co-accused,  made no contrary submissions.

District Judge Amanda Henderson remanded both defendants into custody to appear at Craigavon Crown Court on a date to be fixed.
