A man has been accused of striking a dog with a machete and attempting to attack two men with the blade.
Dylan Lochhead, 21, allegedly injured the dog by striking it on the body at a Glasgow flat in February this year.
Prosecutors claim Lochhead caused the animal “unnecessary suffering” in the city’s Maryhill Road.
He is also accused of assaulting Connor Hampson and William Mann by attempting to hit them with the machete at the same time and location.
Lochhead, of Blairdardie, pled not guilty from the dock at a hearing in Glasgow Sheriff Court on Thursday.
A new hearing date was set for June by Sheriff Joan Kerr, who continued Lochhead’s remand in custody meantime.
