A KILWINNING man facing an attempted murder accusation after a man was left with critical injuries will remain on remand.

John Pollock, 43, appeared from custody for a second full committal hearing last week [July 24] after his arrest for alleged involvement in an assault in Sloan Avenue, Irvine at 10pm on Wednesday July 17.

Police confirmed a man was taken to Crosshouse Hospital and described as being in a critical but stable condition.

When Pollock returned to Kilmarnock Sheriff Court last week [Friday, July 24] he entered no plea to charges of attempted murder and assault to severe injury, permanent impairment and danger to life.

The Crown Office confirmed he was fully committed and remanded in custody to face the charges at a later date.

Police Scotland said: “We were called to a report of a disturbance in Sloan Avenue, Irvine, around 10.20pm on Wednesday, July 15. A 42-year-old man was taken to the University Hospital Crosshouse with serious injuries. He is described as being in a critical but stable condition.

“A 43-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection and is due to appear at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court.”
