Knife wielding man wore 'Scream mask' outside Stroud post office, court hears
A 37-YEAR-OLD man who was arrested while carrying two knives and wearing a 'Scream' mask near a Stroud post office has admitted charges of affray and possessing a bladed article.
But Alex Charlamow's denial of a charge of attempted robbery was accepted by the prosecution at Gloucester Crown Court.
Recorder Rosemary Collins remanded him in custody until November 4 for a pre-sentence report to be prepared.
Charlamow of Russell Street, Stroud, had himself rung the police saying he had a knife and had been waving it in the post office.
Officers arrived and arrested him and recovered two knives from him, she said.
He was wearing a Scream mask and a hood.
Although Charlamow claimed he had been in the post office with a knife no-one there had seen him and it appeared he did not actually go in because the postmaster was carrying a large parcel and blocking the doorway, said prosecutor Janine Wood.
