Man and boy face Aberdeen attempted murder charge
A man and a boy have appeared in court charged with attempted murder after a man was found badly injured in the Seaton area of Aberdeen.
The 57-year-old was left in a critical condition after being attacked on Golf Road last Thursday.
Robert Laird, 24, and a 15-year-old boy both appeared on petition at Aberdeen Sheriff Court.
They made no plea or declaration. Mr Laird was remanded in custody while the boy was granted bail.
A 37-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman have also been charged in connection with the incident.
They were expected to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court on Tuesday.
