Police have charged a man in connection with a robbery and theft in St Leonards.
On Monday 2 January, police attended the Coral bookmakers in Battle Road after being alerted to a robbery at the premises.
A man had walked into the shop shortly before 10.30am and demanded money from a member of staff, before making off with a quantity of cash.
No-one was injured in the incident.
A Sussex Police spokesperson said “Kenneth Brown, 56, of Marline Road, St Leonards, was arrested and subsequently charged with one count of robbery.
He has also been charged with one count of theft after an elderly woman had her purse stolen from her while standing outside the Co-op store in London Road, St Leonards, on Thursday 15 December 2022.
Brown appeared before Brighton Magistrates’ Court on Monday 9 January, and was remanded in custody.”
He will next appear at Lewes Crown Court for a plea and trial preparation hearing on Monday 6 February.
