Attempted murder charge over Leeds machete horror

A man has appeared in court charged with attempted murder after a man was attacked with a machete in his Leeds home.


Nathan Seaward, of Dulverton Place, Cottingley, has also been charged with possessing an offensive weapon and false imprisonment following the incident on Cottingley Drive last Friday, June 12.

A 35-year-old man suffered huge gashes to his arm in the attack at about 5pm.

He was treated at hospital before being released.

It is believed the incident happened after two dogs attacked each other on the estate. One of the dogs is thought to have lost an ear.

Seaward, 24, was remanded in custody by Leeds magistrates yesterday to appear at Leeds Crown Court at a later date.

Amy Gidman, believed to be Seaward’s partner, has already been charged with possession of an offensive weapon, possession of a bladed article, false imprisonment of a woman and common assault in connection with the incident.

Police are still appealing for witnesses to come forward. Call Leeds CID via 101.
