Court House-07One of the men charged with a carpark attack on two brothers in central Christchurch last week has pleaded not guilty and the case is heading for a trial.

Two men have been charged with attacking the 19 and 21-year-old brothers, both Lincoln University students, in a central city carpark about 1am on Sunday August 7.

The arrested men had cases listed at the Christchurch District Court today, but both were given registrar’s remands which meant they did not need to appear before the court.

Benjamin Paul Conner, a 21-year-old from Sydenham, and Luan Minh Pham, 23, from Riccarton, are both charged with causing grievous bodily harm to one of the brothers, with intent to injure.

Pham is also charged with assaulting the other brother.

Pham denies the charges and was remanded on bail to a case review hearing on October 11. That is the next stage on the way to a trial.

Conner was remanded on bail without plea to September 2.

Police said after the attack that the 19-year-old had lost a tooth and suffered a skull fracture and bleeding on the brain.
