Pair charged over cashpoint robbery
Two men appeared in court charged with a street robbery in Hartlepool.
Lewis Miller and Jaxon Briggs are alleged to have taken their victim to a cashpoint in Murray Street in a bid to get him to withdraw money.
The incident is alleged to have happened in the early hours of Thursday, June 27.
Miller, 19, of Stockton Road, and Briggs, 18, of Dent Street, both in Hartlepool, did not enter any pleas during a short preliminary hearing at Teesside Magistrates' Court.
A third man, who was in hospital after the allegation was made, is likely to be charged in connection with the same incident, the court heard.
The magistrates ordered the case to be sent to Teesside Crown Court for a preliminary hearing which is set to be held on July 26.
Miller and Briggs were both remanded in custody in the meantime.
