Two due in court after north Belfast riot

Two people are due to appear in court next month after being charged in connection with a riot in north Belfast.

One of them, a 23-year-old man, is scheduled to appear at Belfast Magistrates Court on November 23 after he was charged with riotous assembly.

Meanwhile, a 17-year-old male has also been charged with riotous assembly, possession of an offensive weapon and criminal damage. He is expected to appear before Belfast Youth Court on November 21.

A police spokesman said all charges will be reviewed by the Public Prosecution Service, as is normal procedure.

It is understood the charges are in connection with violence which broke out in the Denmark Street area on September 2 after a contentious republican parade in the area.

Both males were arrested on October 24. A 21-year-old man arrested on the same day on suspicion of riotous assembly has been released on bail pending further inquiries.
