Two men have been charged over an attack in which another man was slashed across his face.

Derek Edge, aged 43, and Nicholas Ellis, 31, both of no fixed abode, have been charged with grievous bodily harm.

They were arrested over an incident in Exchange Gateway, off Fargate, in which a 38-year-old man and 44-year-old woman were assaulted on Tuesday night.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: “The man suffered serious wounds to his face and remains in hospital.

“The woman suffered minor injuries to her face. She was also taken to hospital but has since been released.”
