A man has been charged over two attempted armed robberies and an aggravated burglary that happened in Doncaster this weekend.

Diesel Cookson, 23, has been charged over three offences in the Wheatley area over a series of incidents which occurred on Saturday.

The first incident happened at the One Stop Shop in Morley Road.

A man entered the shop armed with a knife and demanded cash before fleeing empty handed.

A few minutes later, the same thing happened at Sugar Rays Pizza, in Beckett Road. Again, the man fled empty handed.

A man then reportedly committed an aggravated burglary at an address in Baxter Avenue.

Cookson, of Christchurch Road, Doncaster, has been charged with two counts of robbery and one aggravated burglary.

He has been remanded into custody and will appear before Doncaster Magistrates Court tomorrow, Tuesday.
