Co-accused to face court on rob charge

A LAUNCESTON man will face court today charged with aggravated armed robbery in relation to an incident at Wellington Street News and Lotto.

The 22-year-old will appear in the Launceston Magistrates Court at 4pm. 

The man is the co-accused of Joseph Freeman, 21, of Summerhill, who faced court last week and is yet to enter a plea.

Police will allege that the man entered the South Launceston business on November 21, armed with a knife and demanded money from the complainant.

It will be alleged that the man took the money and fled on foot with Mr Freeman.
