Three in court after Hawick armed police op

Three people from Hawick have made a private court appearance charged with assaulting and robbing a man.

Robert Searle, 20, and Stephen Scott, 30, appeared alongside 18-year-old Chelsea Gillon and are also accused of assault and a firearms offence.

All three made no plea or declaration and the case was continued at Selkirk Sheriff Court.

The court appearance followed an incident in Hawick on Monday when armed police sealed off a street.

All three were granted bail pending their next court appearance.
