Two brothers accused of affray, ABH and destroying gnomes in Welshpool have been told they must wait another week for their case to be heard in court.

Nathan Bryce, 27, and Stephen Evans, 29, are alleged to have assaulted Robert Jones by causing actual bodily harm and using violence that would cause him to fear for his safety on May 14.

They are further accused of destroying gnomes worth £20 belonging to Gareth Goodwin on the same day.

The brothers did not give pleas at the hearing at Welshpool Magistrates’ Court on February 14.


Bryce appeared via video link from HMP Berwyn where he has been in custody for nine months waiting for the case to be dealt with.

Magistrates agreed to adjourn the case for a further week while CCTV footage of the alleged incident is reviewed by Bryce and Evans’ solicitor before they enter their pleas.

Dr Rachel Jones, chair, told the pair: “Sorry about that but there are important things that Mr Hanratty needs to see and do before your case is heard.”

Mr Evans, of Park Place, Welshpool, was granted unconditional bail to appear before the court on February 21.
