I didn't have axe when I robbed store, Carlisle man tells court

A man has admitted robbing an assistant at a Carlisle off-licence in the Currock area of the city – but he denied carrying an axe.

At the city’s crown court yesterday, Martin Forster, 22, appeared before a judge on a video link.

He admitted robbing the Booze Buster store in Blackwell Road on August 11, stealing cash and cigarettes.

He also pleaded guilty to burgling a property in Crossways, Carlisle, when he stole clothing.

After Forster, of Raven Nook, off Greystone Road in Carlisle, denied carrying an axe during the robbery, Crown Prosecution Service lawyer Gerard Rogerson agreed that the allegation should lie on the court file.

The defendant was remanded in custody and is likely to be sentenced on Wednesday.
