The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

Des­per­ate for cash dur­ing a 12-hour drink­ing binge, two Aberdeen men at­tacked a man at his home and forced him to take money from an ATM.

Ai­den Bartlett, who ap­peared on re­mand from HMP Grampian, and Do­minic Haw­cutt, of Urquhart Road, ad­mit­ted “re­peat­edly punch­ing” Bren­dan Al­lan.

They then took him to a bank ma­chine, be­fore or­der­ing him to with­draw money and rob­bing him.

Bartlett, 22, and Haw­cutt, 19, at­tacked Mr Al­lan at his home on Le­mon Street be­fore co­erc­ing him to take an undis­closed sum from the ma­chine at the Asda store on Beach Boule­vard.

Aberdeen Sher­iff Court yes­ter­day heard the pair had been drink­ing from 6pm the pre­vi­ous night and ar­rived at Mr Al­lan’s door at 6am on Septem­ber 1. Both ad­mit­ted as­sault and rob­bery.

Sher­iff Wil­liam Sum­mers noted Bartlett had sim­i­lar of­fences on his record and jailed him for 14 months.

Haw­cutt, a first of­fender, was or­dered to per­form 240 hours of un­paid work within 12 months.
