Former Aberdeen restaurant boss cleared of attacking rival with hammer
Ex-Jimmy Chung’s boss accused of attack
THE former boss of an Aberdeen restaurant was cleared of viciously attacking a rival with a hammer.
Ronny Yung – formerly the boss of Jimmy Chung’s at Aberdeen’s Beach Esplanade – was accused alongside his wife Gillian of a hammer attack on Peter Chan.
Mr Chan ran the rival branch of Jimmy Chung’s in Dyce, Aberdeen.
Mr and Mrs Yung, whose address was given in Aberdeen Sheriff Court papers as 6 Buckie Road, Bridge of Don, Aberdeen were accused of repeatedly punching and slapping Mr Chan on the head and body.
They were further alleged to have pushed him on the body before repeatedly striking him on the head with a hammer and kicking him on the head, to his severe injury.
But the pair were found not guilty by the jury after claiming they acted in self-defence during the incident on October 3, 2011.
