Two women and a man from Dundee are accused of assaulting and robbing a man with a hammer and a knife.

Emma Campbell, Jane Gellatly and Paul Brown appeared at Dundee Sheriff Court.

They are alleged to have acted with another person – who is unknown to prosecutors – in attacking James Scallan or Thomson at a house in Dundee in July last year.

Campbell, 34, of Court Street North, Gellatly, 43, of Hebrides Drive, and 51-year-old Brown, of Marryat Terrace, appeared privately before Sheriff Tom Hughes on a petition alleging that, on July 17 last year, at a flat on Court Street North, while acting with another person unknown, they assaulted Mr Scallan or Thomson by brandishing a hammer at him, attempting to strike him with a hammer before brandishing a knife at him and striking him on the hand with the knife.

Prosecutors say that the group then rifled through the man’s pockets, all to his injury and robbed him of £50 in cash. Campbell is alleged to have committed the assault while on a bail order.

All three made no plea during their brief appearance.

Sheriff Hughes continued the case for the Crown to make further examination into the circumstances of the case.

All three of the accused were granted bail on the special condition that they do not approach or contact, or attempt to approach or contact, the complainer in the case.
