A man has appeared in court accused of glassing a 21-year-old dancer near Huddersfield.
Andrew Shires was in the dock charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent to Chloe Knapton, of Holmfirth, who was left with pieces of glass embedded in her face and neck following an attack as she sat in her car last month on New Road in Netherthong.
Shires, 37, from Rattle Row, Holmfirth, spoke only to confirm his name as he sat in the court showing no emotion, wearing a red t-shirt and jogging bottoms.
Anastasis Tasou, for Shires, told the court there was to be no indication of plea.
Nigel Wray, prosecutor for the case, told the Recorder of Leeds that Miss Knapton 'suffered serious injuries' in the attack, which was allegedly inflicted by Shires in Netherthong.
The case was adjourned until July, when the defendant is due to appear to enter his plea.
Miss Knapton’s injuries include a deep cut to her shoulder, a very deep wound to her neck where the glass bottle became embedded and wounds between her nose and mouth.
She was taken to Leeds General Infirmary where surgeons removed glass and she spent three days in recovery before being allowed home.
Miss Knapton, an aspiring cruise ship dancer, runs a branch of dance school KT Academy in Holmfirth and has received hundreds of messages of support from her friends and colleagues. She was not present in court.
