Man charged after police found him hiding in shed in Denton

A 27-year-old man has been charged with a series of offences - including assault and dangerous driving - after he was spotted hiding in a shed by a police helicopter in Denton. 

Ross Foster was seen in the Haughton Green area but made off from police, who were then called by a member of the public who spotted a man hiding in a shed. 

He was quickly sighted by the police helicopter, who guided officers to him and he was arrested on Wednesday (June 10). 

Now, Foster - of no fixed abode - has been charged with no fewer than nine offences. 

These are a domestic-related assault (Actual Bodily Harm), criminal damage, dangerous driving, two counts of driving whilst disqualified, two counts of driving with no insurance, and two counts of breaching a Domestic Violence Protection Order (DVPO). 

He was refused bail and has been remanded in police custody. 

Foster appeared at Manchester and Salford Magistrates Court on Thursday, where he was remanded in custody for trial at a later date. 

It followed an investigation by officers from Greater Manchester Police's Tameside team, the Tameside District Tasking Team, the Tactical Dogs Unit and Neighbourhood Policing Areas (NPAs) North West.
