A man threatened to stab and then robbed a pensioner in a Rosyth street in broad daylight.

As it turned out, all that Barry Moodie managed to steal was the OAP’s bus pass.

The 41-year-old, of Mossend Terrace, Cowdenbeath, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court on Tuesday.

He admitted that on June 5 last year in Findlay Crescent, he assaulted a 65-year-old man, held a set of keys against his back, demanded his wallet, threatened to stab him with a knife, seized his bus pass from his shirt pocket and robbed him of a bus pass.

Sheriff Craig McSherry called for reports and Moodie will return to court to be sentenced on April 5.

After the incident, the police asked for the public’s help in tracking down the offender.

The court was told that the victim was walking along the street at 4pm on a Sunday afternoon when he was approached by Moodie and threatened.
