A teenager who allegedly smashed a car into a house in Northampton has appeared in court charged with keeping a man against his will and threatening to kill him.
Jordan Bridge-Simmons, aged 19, was arrested at about 4am on Wednesday along with TJ Platt, aged 20, in connection with a car accident in Home Farm Close, Little Billing.
Northampton Magistrates’ Court heard yesterday that, on arrival, police found that Bridge-Simmons had allegedly stolen a black Mazda 6 VRM car just metres away and driven it straight into the back of a Mini Cooper, which then smashed into the garage of its owner’s house.
Officers arrested him and Platt and charged them both in connection with a complex attempted robbery.
Bridge-Simmons was charged with aggravated theft of the car, no vehicle insurance, driving otherwise in accordance with a licence, robbery, actual bodily harm, making threats to kill, and false imprisonment.
Platt was charged with ABH, robbery, false imprisonment and threats to kill,
Neither man’s solicitor applied for bail.
Magistrates sent the case to crown court to be heard later this year.
