Driver 'punched and threatened with being stabbed by robbers'
A MOTORIST was punched in the face and threatened with being stabbed by robbers who demanded he hand over his car keys, a court heard.
A jury at Bolton Crown Court was told that one of the robbers was caught after his distinctive Mohican haircut was recognised.
Nicholas Flanagan, prosecuting, said police later found Bill Carney, fully clothed in his bed, where he claimed he had been all night.
Victim Stephen Blackburn told the court that he was visiting his girlfriend’s flat in Stanworth Avenue, Breightmet on March 25 when the alleged incident happened.
Carney, of Blenheim Road, Breightmet, denies attempted robbery.
The case continues.
