On Friday (October 27), the teenager had his bicycle stolen while being threatened in the Old Town.

Tyrone Curland - from Queensway, Hemel Hempstead - appeared before remand court on Monday (October 30).

The 19-year-old was remanded into custody ahead of an appearance at Luton Crown Court on November 27.

A 15-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared before remand court yesterday (Tuesday, October 31) and was released on conditional bail.

He is due to appear at St Albans Magistrates' Court today (Wednesday, November 1).
