A NEWTOWN man faces trial later this year after denying harassment, assault and burglary at the crown court.

Callum Abbot, 24, appeared in custody at Mold Crown Court on Friday, February 23, where he entered not guilty pleas to all three charges.

Abbot, of Back Lane, Newtown, denied putting a person in fear of violence by harassment, a charge which accuses him of assaulting a female victim, making threats to kill, threats to stab a male and making repeated contact with the female over Snapchat. 


This is alleged to have occurred between January 1-24 this year in Newtown.

The burglary charges allege he stole cigarettes on January 23 in Newtown. The assault charge also relates to the same female, and is alleged to have occurred on October 1, 2023.

A fourth charge, that he breached a suspended prison sentence made in November last year, is also linked to the case, but was not put to Abbot this week.

County Times:

Abbot appeared at Friday’s hearing via videolink from HMP Berwyn, where he is currently on remand.

Judge Timothy Petts said he was further remanding Abbot, on the allegation of breaching the suspended sentence order.

He will remain on remand until his trial, which is due to take place on July 18.
