Teenager accused of car hold-up
A teenager appeared in private at Perth Sheriff Court yesterday, charged with ordering a motorist from his car at knifepoint and then stealing the vehicle and its contents.
Eighteen-year-old Charles Lindsay, of Logie Drive, Logiealmond, made no plea.
Represented by Perth lawyer John McLaughlin, he was freed on bail but a curfew was imposed, restricting him to his home from 9.30pm-7am, seven days a week.
Lindsay is said to have been acting with another person during the incident, alleged to have taken place on the A926 road between Blairgowrie and Alyth on October 13.
The exact location was given as a lay-by prior to the turn off for Ardler.
Lindsay is accused of assaulting Rhys Williams, entering his car which was parked in the lay-by and demanding property from him.
It is claimed that he seized hold of Mr Williams’ body, presented a knife at his face and ordered him out of the vehicle.
Lindsay is said to have driven the 11-year-old car away, robbing the victim of his car and its contents.
