Man in court facing assault and robbery charge after alleged raid at Aberdeen store

A man has appeared in court charged in connection with an alleged robbery at an Aberdeen shop.

It comes after an alleged incident at RS McColl last week in Loirston Road in the Cove area of the city, in which more than £1,000 was taken.

Officers from Police Scotland were called to the convenience store at around 9.20pm on Wednesday, October 25.

William Irvine appeared in private at Aberdeen Sheriff Court yesterday in relation to the matter.

The 38-year-old, whose general address was given as Aberdeen, is facing charges of assault and robbery as well as assault to injury.

Irvine is further accused of having a blade in a public place.

During the hearing in Aberdeen he made no plea.

A Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service spokeswoman said the case against Irvine was committed for further examination and he was released on bail.

No further date have been set for future appearances relating to the case.
