Armed Sheffield man admits attempted robbery and possessing an offensive weapon after he was seen with a machete
A man has admitted committing an attempted robbery and possessing an offensive weapon after he was seen with a machete.
Sheffield Crown Court heard on September 10 how Lester Ramsey, aged 21, of Nottingham Street, Burngreave, Sheffield, pleaded guilty to the two counts after an incident at a convenience store on July 13.
Richard Adams, defending, said there was CCTV footage which catalogued the offending in its entirety during a short-lived incident.
The court also heard that Ramsey had the machete while he was on Verdon Street in Burngreave.
Recorder Abdul Iqbal told Ramsey he would need to consider a pre-sentence report from the probation service and need to consider what future risks the defendant may pose due to his antecedent history which includes a previous conviction for manslaughter.
Recorder Iqbal adjourned the case until October 15 when the CCTV footage will be shown and all matters will be considered before sentencing.
