Man accused of Kendal “robbery” set to stand trial

Carlisle Crown Court

[A] MAN accused of robbing a “vulnerable” man in Kendal will go in trial later this year.

Alastair David James McCallum, 28, faced one charge when he appeared at Carlisle Crown Court earlier today (TUES).

McCallum pleaded not guilty to one charge. This alleges that he robbed a man – described as a “vulnerable” individual – of cash on February 14 last year.

A trial which, it is estimated will last two days, will now be held at the crown court. This is due to get under way on December 3.

McCallum, of Overdale Close, Kendal, was remanded in custody by Judge James Adkin.

An application for bail is likely to be heard in due course, the court was told.
