A 30-year-old Hakin man appeared before Haverfordwest magistrates court on Monday morning (December 2) charged with robbery.

Christopher Cole of Gelliswick Road is accused of robbing a woman on Observatory Avenue just after 5pm on Tuesday, November 26.

A Dyfed-Powys Police spokesman said: “A woman was pushed to ground by a man dressed in a black hooded top, who stole a substantial quantity of cash and her handbag.”

Cole did not enter a plea to the offence, but did admit the possession of cannabis.

Both cases were committed to Swansea Crown Court, where Cole will appear for a preliminary hearing on Tuesday, December 10.

He was remanded in custody until then.
