Clarence Cantwell, 26, is back before a judge on Dec. 27
Charged with robbing a St. John's Scotiabank with a baseball bat, 26-year-old Clarence Cantwell made two appearances before a judge in provincial court Wednesday.
Cantwell first appeared in the morning and was ordered to undergo a lunchtime psychiatric assessment. Having been deemed fit, he was remanded in custody when he returned to the courtroom in the afternoon. He'll make his next court appearance Dec. 27.
Cantwell had allegedly taken a truck from a local dealership out for a test drive Tuesday morning, and used it as the getaway vehicle in an armed robbery. He is accused of entering the Scotiabank in Torbay Road Plaza around 11:30 a.m., brandishing a baseball bat and demanding cash before escaping.
The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary arrested Cantwell without incident in the Military Road area about an hour later. The truck was found in a different location.
Cantwell is charged with robbery, having his face masked while committing an offence, and possessing a weapon dangerous to the public.
