Two men – one of them a sex worker – have been remanded on serious assault and armed robbery charges at the Christchurch District Court.

They face a joint charge of robbing a man of a laptop while armed with a shotgun and a hammer, and wounding him with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, in Christchurch on Monday.

Levi Adam Bartlett, a 30-year-old sex worker, of Linwood, faces the joint charge of wounding the man with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, robbing him while armed with a hammer, unlawfully carrying a shotgun and possession of ammunition, and possession of cannabis.

Barlett was remanded in custody for a video-link appearance from the prison on June 25, for a possible bail application.

Petuera Clarke, 31, of Sydenham, faces the joint charge of wounding the man with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, robbing him while armed with a shotgun, unlawfully carrying a shotgun and possession of ammunition, and intentionally obstructing a police officer.

Clarke made no bail application and was remanded in custody for an appearance by video-link from the prison on June 18, when a bail application was expected to be made, duty lawyer Andrew Bailey told Community Magistrate Leigh Langridge.

No pleas were entered.
