A 22-year-old who is accused of robbing the same man twice in six weeks is to face trial. Rhys Carey, of Bath Road, Devizes, is said to have carried out the first offence in Gipsy Lane, Swindon, on September 10, taking £4.
He is then accused of robbing the same victim in the town on Friday, October 19, making off with £15. When Carey appeared at Swindon Crown Court he denied two charges of robbery. Judge Douglas Field adjourned the case to Monday, June 3, and released him on conditional bail.
