Seven youths appear in Swansea Crown Court charged with robbery

A GROUP of youths has appeared before a judge after being charged with three offences including robbery.

The group of seven appeared at Swansea Crown Court. Six were on bail and a seventh appeared by video link for the hearing.

All seven pleaded not guilty to the three charges that they have been charged with.

It is alleged that on September 29 they robbed a person of a wallet and its contents in Swansea city centre.

It is also alleged that they robbed a different person of his baseball cap.

That offence is alleged to have taken place on the same day.

The seven also denied an offence of violent disorder which was part of the same incident.

That count alleges that they were present together and three or more of them had used or threatened unlawful violence and that their conduct would cause a person to fear for their personal safety.

The offences are all said to have taken place in the city centre, prosecuting barrister Patrick Griffiths told Judge Paul Thomas during the hearing.

The six who appeared on bail had their terms renewed and the seventh remained in custody.

They were told their trial will take place at Swansea Crown Court on April 7.
