Two Hawick teenagers have appeared in private at Selkirk Sheriff Court accused of assaulting a man to the danger of his life.
Jamie Blacklock, 18, and Peter Graham, who is 16, are both charged with assault to severe injury and permanent disfigurement.
It follows an incident in Hawick during the early hours of Sunday 17 October.
Both teenagers made no plea or declaration and their cases were continued for further examination.
They were released on bail by Sheriff Janyss Scott and their next appearance in court has yet to be confirmed.
Another Hawick man, 22-year-old Graham Blacklock, has already appeared on petition at Jedburgh Sheriff Court in connection with the same incident.
He was also charged with assault to severe injury, permanent disfigurement and danger to life.
