A man is to stand trial later this year accused of attempted robbery in Norwich.

Essa Al-Dossary, 21, appeared at Norwich Crown Court charged with the attempted robbery of a man in Broadland Court, off Wherry Road in Norwich's Riverside complex.

Al-Dossary, of Elm Close, North Elmham, near Dereham, denied the offence, said to have happened on October 14 last year, when he appeared in court on Tuesday (July 5).

A trial expected to last three to four days was given a warned list date of Monday, November 28.

It means the case could be heard anytime within two weeks of that date.

Lynne Shirley appeared for the prosecution.

Al-Dossary was represented by Rob Pollington.

The defendant was granted bail until the trial.
