Have your say

A MAN is due to stand trial accused of robbing someone of £1.50.

Sean Stagg is accused of taking the money from John Rose in Havant on February 5.

Stagg, of Swanmore Road, Havant, denies a charge of robbery, assault with intent to rob and intimidation.

The intimidation charge relates to an allegation that he threatened the victim of the robbery in a bid to stop the court case going ahead.

He is accused of threatening to set his dog on Mr Rose.

Dressed in jeans and a T-shirt Stagg appeared at Portsmouth Crown Court yesterday where his case was adjourned for a trial in August.

The 46-year-old was remanded in custody until then.
