Plymouth robbery and dangerous driving trial date is set
A MAN who allegedly robbed a woman and then drove a car at a police community support officer has appeared before a judge.
Peter Bailey, 28, was produced at Plymouth Crown Court charged with robbery and dangerous driving.
He allegedly took a handbag from the 60-year-old in a Mutley street on January 2.
Bailey is then accused of driving a VW Golf dangerously in Mount Gould later that day.
Magistrates heard at an earlier hearing that PCSO Chris Kinski was allegedly struck by a car which he was attempting to stop.
Prosecutors claimed he had to dive out of the way and a wing mirror struck him on the stab vest. It is understood he was unhurt and quickly returned to duty.
It is alleged the Golf was then involved in a collision with another vehicle.
Bailey, of Pier Street, West Hoe, did not enter any pleas.
Judge Paul Darlow set down a trial on June 24.
Bailey, who had been working as a sales assistant for a solar panel company, was remanded in custody until an interim hearing on April 15.
