Two men have appeared in court over a knife attack on a teenage boy.

The 16-year-old was slashed in the cheek during the alleged attack in Oakes on Saturday (Dec 9).

Kane Charlton and Lachlan Green, both 19, had allegedly gone to an address shortly after midnight looking for a female.

Prosecutor Alex Bozman told Kirklees magistrates that both men had knives on them and were aggressive.

Charlton, of Wren Street in Paddock, allegedly swiped his knife at the teenager and cut his left cheek.

He faces charges of possession of a knife and using it to unlawfully threaten another.

Green, of Holme Park Court in Berry Brow, is also accused of possessing a knife in public.
