[A] KENDAL man has admitted robbing one male and trying to rob another.
James Daniel Walker, 24, appeared at Carlisle Crown Court (FRI) in front of Judge Peter Davies.
Walker pleaded guilty to robbing a youth of cash, a wallet and tobacco, and the possession of illegal drugs amphetamine and cannabis – all on 19th November.
Appearing on a video link from custody, Walker also admitted attempting to rob a second male of money, on 27th September.
Both of the incidents are said to have occurred in the Kendal area.
Walker had appeared at the crown court in October having committed a number of other violent crimes. These included assaults on two men during a vicious hammer attack following Kendal Town’s football match against Lancaster City last March.
On that occasion, a different judge deferred passing sentence for six months, giving Walker, of Oxenholme Road, a chance to work with professionals to address personal problems.
But he will now be punished for all of his crimes on 20th January.
In the meantime he was remanded in custody.
