James Romano Whittaker, 34, appeared in Summary Court on Thursday charged with a robbery that occurred on Nov. 22.
The robbery charge, a Category A offense, was immediately transmitted to Grand Court, where it will be mentioned on Dec. 12.
Whittaker is charged with stealing a handbag containing two phones, keys, documents and credit cards belonging to two individuals by using force against one of them. The incident took place on North Church Street at 1:35 a.m.
Whittaker appeared before Magistrate Grace Donalds by way of a video link from Northward Prison.
Defense attorney John Furniss asked for his client to be produced in person for Grand Court, as he would be applying for bail on that date.
