A Douglas resident has been remanded at the Isle of Man Prison after being accused of biting off a man’s ear.

Gavin William Patterson, of Taubman Terrace, appeared at Douglas Courthouse yesterday (9 July).

The 40-year-old has been charged with assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

The court heard he allegedly got into a fight with the man in Glen Falcon Gardens on 8 June before leaving him ‘disfigured for life’.

Bail was refused and he’ll next appear in court on 6 August; committal proceedings, where the case is elevated to the Court of General Gaol Delivery, will take place on 27 August.
