Carlisle man admits city street robbery

Carlisle Crown Court

A CARLISLE man has admitted a city street robbery.

Mark Proudfoot, 33, faced two charges when he appeared at Carlisle Crown Court.

Proudfoot admitted robbing William Michael Graham of a mobile phone on August 19. His crime was committed outside a church at Milbourne Street, close to its junction with Charlotte Street and Junction Street.

Proudfoot pleaded not guilty to an allegation that he burgled a bar in the city centre on May 15.

However, a prosecutor concluded it was not in the public interest to proceed with that charge in view of Proudfoot’s robbery admission, and a youth’s previous guilty plea to the break-in. No evidence was offered on that charge.

Proudfoot, of Bowscale Close, Carlisle, will now be sentenced for the robbery at the crown court on a date to be fixed.

In the meantime he was remanded in custody by Judge James Adkin.
