A BOXER has appeared in court after being charged with a string of offences.
Declan Fusco, 22, appeared before Peterlee Magistrates’ Court on Friday accused of causing actual bodily harm on September 14.
He also faces additional charges of assault by beating against a woman, two counts of criminal damage of property belonging to another woman and also one count of breaching a restraining order.
He is yet to enter pleas to any of the charges.
Fusco, of Rydal Crescent, Peterlee, was refused bail by justices and was remanded in custody until his next appearance.
That is due to be at Durham Crown Court on Friday, October 4.
Fusco is rated as one of the area’s most promising boxing stars and hopes to appear in the Commonwealth Games.
