A 20-YEAR-OLD man has admitted threatening another man with a knife, and robbing him of his mobile phone, cash and prescribed medication.

Bartek Janicki, described as a prisoner, carried out the attack at an address in Selkirk’s Thornfield Crescent on November 12.

Sentence was deferred at the town’s sheriff court for background reports, and he was remanded in custody meantime having been no application for bail.

The case is due to recall at Jedburgh Sheriff Court this month when Janicki will appear via a video-link.
