A second man has appeared in court in connection with two alleged robberies at Aberdeen bookies.
Anthony Jackson, 38, appeared in private at Aberdeen Sheriff Court in relation to the matter.
He faced six charges, including assault by threats and robbery, assault and robbery, and three counts of theft by shoplifting.
Jackson, whose general address was given as Liverpool, was also charged with behaving in a threatening or abusive manner.
He made no plea during the hearing and was remanded in custody while the case was committed for further examination. His next appearance was expected to be within the next week.
It comes after police were called to Coral in Cornhill on Monday last week and to William Hill in Mastrick two days later after sums of cash were stolen.
Officers attended the branch of Coral at Cornhill Shopping Arcade on Foresterhill Road at 6.45pm on Monday October 15 after a small amount of cash was taken from staff.
They were then called to William Hill on Summerhill Court at 11.10am on Wednesday.
