Teen accused of Penrith town centre robbery to stand trial

Police at the scene by Barclays Bank

A TEENAGER accused of robbing a woman outside a Penrith town centre bank will stand trial later this year.

Paul Stuchfield, 19, appeared at Carlisle Crown Court over a video link from custody earlier today (FRI).

During a hearing in front of Judge James Adkin, Stuchfield pleaded not guilty to one charge of robbery. This alleges that he robbed a woman of a rucksack and contents on January 16.

The allegation arises out of an incident outside Barclays Bank, Market Square, which was said to have occurred at around 6pm.

Stuchfield, of Kirkoswald, near Penrith, was told his trial will take place at the crown court, and is due to start on April 8.

In the meantime he was remanded in custody by Judge Adkin.
