TWO men have been ordered to stand trial at Taunton Crown Court accused of carrying out a vicious attack on two brothers in Chard town centre.

Krystof Drobek, 21, of Coker Way, Chard, and Jaroslaw Toczek, 27, of Henson Park, Chard, appeared in the dock together before Somerset Magistrates at Yeovil.

They were both jointly charged that on May 7, jointly with each other, they unlawfully and maliciously inflicted grievous bodily harm on Artur Kula.

They were also alleged to have jointly assaulted Daniel Kula causing him actual bodily harm.

Prosecutor Julyan Stephens said that the two defendants were alleged to have attacked the two brothers who were on a night out in Chard and were said to have been kicked while they were on the ground.

As a result Artur sustained a fractured cheekbone and bleeding to his left eye socket while Daniel suffered significant bruising to his face.

Neither defendant entered a plea to the offence and claimed they had been acting in self defence at the time.

The magistrates said that case was so serious that they should be sent to the crown court to stand trial.

They adjourned the matter until January 5 when they must appear before a pre trial hearing at Taunton and in the meantime were released on bail.
