A MAN has been charged after allegedly slashing a man’s hand with broken glass.

Three men were arrested after a 19-year-old victim was attacked on East Hill in May last year.

Maxwell Adutwum Takyi, 19, of Elmstead Road, Colchester, has been charged with wounding with intent, causing criminal damage to a car and theft of a pair of trainers.

He has been bailed to appear at Colchester Magistrates’ Court on January 28.

Two men, aged 19 and 22 and both from Colchester, who were arrested on suspicion of assault, have been released from their bail without charge.
