A man accused of a series of robberies appeared in court today.
Mohammed Hussain, 31, of Hanover Way, Windsor, entered no plea to charges of three robberies, an attempted robbery and making off without payment at Slough Magistrates Court.
The attempted robbery relates to an incident where a 71-year-old man is alleged to have been ordered to hand over his wallet in Lyndhurst Road, Ascot, at just after 6am on Saturday, February 11. The man refused and ran away from the scene.
The robbery charges relate to two teenagers and a woman who had their handbags stolen the same morning.
A 17-year-old girl's handbag was snatched at 6.50am in Albert Road, Old Windsor.
In the next hour a 15-year-old was threatened and her handbag was stolen in Slough Road, Datchet.
Following this, a woman's handbag was stolen as she was walking in York Road, Windsor.
Hussain will appear at Reading Crown Court on Thursday, July 26.
