Teenager in court on Carlisle robbery attempt charge


A teenager accused of attempted robbery and a common assault has been told that he must appear before a crown court judge.

Luke Ian James Hagain, 18, of Welsh Road, Harraby, appeared before magistrates at the city's Rickergate court where he entered no pleas.

Prosecutors say that both offences were committed by the defendant on August 25 in Carlisle.

The victim of the alleged attempted robbery was named in court as a 16 year old boy but his identity can not be revealed for legal reasons.

The name of the alleged assault victim was also named on court papers but he is also a juvenile and so can not be named.

Magistrates told Hagan that he will appear before a judge at Carlisle Crown Court on October 13, when he is likely to be asked to enter his pleas.

He was granted bail on condition that he lives and sleeps at his current address and he must also observe a 10pm to 7am curfew, and answer the door to a police officers if one calls during those hours.

The defendant was represented in court by defence lawyer Chris Toms.
