A ROYSTON man charged with assault after attempting a citizens arrest appeared in court today.
Roland Digby, 49, has been charged with common assault following the incident on September 3.
Today at Stevenage Magistrates Court, the case was adjourned for a week to allow the prosecution to continue gathering evidence.
Mr Digby confronted the group of about 20 teenagers in Serby Avenue after they had thrown around 25 apples at his home, in Burns Road.

Having already phoned the police, he grabbed one of youths, and attempted to perform a citizen's arrest. However, the rest of the gang joined the fracas, and Mr Digby was forced to head to a nearby house, where he phoned the police again.
He then received a call back to say officers could not attend on that evening, and claims that he did not hear anything else until five days later, when he was arrested.
