A man robbed in Wrexham was later blackmailed by one of his attackers in a bid to get his bank card PIN.

Defendants Victoria Emma Cullen, 34, a mother of five from Chirk who is in the early stages of pregnancy, and co-defendant Bradley Jones, 19, admitted a robbery charge when they appeared at Mold Crown Court on Friday.

They admitted that they robbed a man of his wallet, phone, passport and cash during an incident on May 19.

Cullen admitted that she assaulted the victim, causing him actual bodily harm.

Jones admitted a blackmail charge – that he made unwarranted demands for a bank card PIN with menaces from the robbery victim.

Cullen, of Coronation Drive, and Jones, of St David's Crescent in Wrexham, were re-bailed pending sentence on October 1.

The court was told that Cullen was a mother of five who was expecting her sixth.

Alun Williams said that she was in the early stages of pregnancy.

Judge Rhys Rowlands said that she had been arrested in May and it looked as if she had conceived subsequent to that arrest.

"She must realise that is not going to help her one bit," he said.

"It may even be viewed as an aggravating feature from where I am sitting..

Both were warned it was a very serious offence and that custody would be uppermost in the court's mind.

The judge said he did not want the defendants to hold out any false hopes.
