Homeless man charged with robbery at Carlisle shop

A homeless man has appeared in court charged with robbery at a Carlisle shop.

Antony Christopher Edwards, 38, spoke only to confirm his details, telling the city’s magistrates’ court yesterday that he was of no fixed abode.

He is charged with threatening two female members of staff at the Bedford Road Foreways store, off Dalston Road, with a large knife.

The court heard that £110 was stolen during the alleged robbery.

As it is an indictable offence, district judge Gerald Chalk sent the case straight to Carlisle Crown Court.

Edwards was remanded in custody prior to his next appearance on February 17.
