Man charged with attempted murder over machete attack in Leeds

  • Posted

A 24-year-old man recently appeared at Leeds Magistrates’ Court after seriously injuring another man during a machete attack in Leeds.

Nathan Seaward was charged with attempted murder, possession of an offensive weapon and false imprisonment of a woman.

He has been remanded in custody until a further hearing.

Mr Seaward’s 35-year-old victim, who was injured in the attack, received serious cuts to his right arm and required hospital treatment for his injuries.

A 45-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman have also been arrested as part of the investigation.

They remain on police bail until further enquiries have been completed.

Meanwhile, a 25-year-old woman, Amy Gidman, has been charged in connection with the case for possessing an offensive weapon and a bladed article, for falsely imprisoning a woman, and common assault.

Detective Inspector Phil Jackson, of Leeds District CID, said: “We are still very keen to hear from anyone who witnessed any part of this incident or who has any information that could assist the investigation.

“We are aware there was an incident at the shopping precinct on the Cottingley estate at about 3pm which we believe is linked to the later attack. There appears to have been an altercation after two staffy type dogs attacked each and we would like to hear from anyone who witnessed that.”
