Carl Robinson, of Springfield Street, Springfield, appeared before borough justices charged with assaulting Taylor James, Jamie Hock and a PC Powell in the execution of his duty.

The 21-year-old is also accused of possessing an extendable baton and a folding knife with a blade longer than 3ins.

He was released on unconditional bail pending a first appearance before a Bolton Crown Court judge on November 28.
