A man charged with attempting to rob the manager of Falmouth's McDonald's restaurant has appeared at crown court.

Cy Prowse, aged 30, of Tresawya Drive in Truro, appeared at Truro Crown Court via video link from HMP Exeter charged with attempted robbery.

He was remanded in custody following his brief appearance and the case was adjourned to January 11, 2022 for his next appearance in court to allow time for a psychiatric report to be completed.

A provisional trial date was also set for March 7 next year.

Appearing before magistrates in Bodmin on October 28, Prowse was charged that on Saturday, October 23 he attempted to rob Marcel Seehaber, the manager of the McDonald's in Dracaena Avenue.

The appearance followed an 'incident' at the McDonald's restaurant in Falmouth on the Friday/Saturday night.

The entire site was closed on the Saturday morning with police tape blocking the restaurant entrance.

Entry to the car park was shut off by a row of cones, and a staff member in a high vis jacket could be seen standing outside preventing people from entering.

Both entry points to the restaurant were also taped over with blue and white police tape.

Both the restaurant and drive-thru were initially closed to customers.

The drive-thru reopened on Saturday afternoon, but the restaurant remained closed at that time.
