A man is due in court today after being charged in connection with two robberies.
Connor Folkard-Moore, 19, of Ruskin Road, Norwich, is accused of robbery and assault with intent to commit robbery.
The charges relate to incidents which happened on Friday, December 6, the first taking place in Rouen Road near the junction with Thorn Lane at about 5.55am. The victim, a 27-year-old man, was assaulted while attempts were made to steal his belongings although nothing was taken.
The second incident happened on Horns Lane at about 6am when a 16-year-old boy was punched and robbed of his mobile phone, digital camera and rucksack.
Enquiries led officers to arrest Folkard-Moore yesterday who was questioned at Wymondham Police Investigation Centre and later charged.
He also faces a charge of criminal damage in relation to an incident on Sunday 24 November in King Street where a wall was damaged.
He was remanded in custody overnight and will appear at Norwich Magistrates Court today.
