TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20: Two men appeared in court today charged with breaking into a house with a fake gun.

O’Brien Shane Gibbons, 22, and Sean Kenneth Evans, 22, are accused of entering a Southampton home with an imitation firearm on September 17 with intent to cause actual bodily harm.

Mr Gibbons was also charged with unlawfully assaulting Teklesha Wolete Simons on the same day.

The defendants were not required to plead as the charges are indictable and must be heard in the Supreme Court.

Mr Gibbons and Mr Evans, both from Southampton, were remanded into custody after a lengthy bail hearing.

They will return to court in two weeks.
