Perthshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE - Court Re­porter

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.
