Detectives have charged a second man as part of an investigation into a serious assault that occurred in Kendal.
Jordan Lee Jenkinson, 25, of Lound Road, Kendal, will today (April 4) appear at Barrow Magistrates’ Court charged with attempted murder and possession of an offensive weapon.
The charges relate to an assault that occurred in the early hours of Saturday morning (March 30) on a footpath at Waterside.
The victim of the assault, a 33-year-old Kendal man, remains in a critical condition at the Royal Preston Hospital.
Earlier this week officers charged Luke Canning, 21, of Bridge Street, Burneside, with the same offences. He was remanded in custody following an appearance at court and is scheduled to appear at Carlisle Crown Court on April 15.
