A Fife man has appeared in court in connection with an alleged armed robbery in Burntisland at the weekend.
Alexander Forbes made a private appearance at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court on Monday, charged with assault and robbery.
The 37-year-old was also charged with being in possession of a knife in a public place and assaulting a police officer.
The Burntisland man made no plea to the charges against him and the case was continued for further examination.
Forbes was remanded in custody pending a second appearance sometime within the next eight days.
His arrest follows an incident at an off-licence on Cromwell Road on Friday evening.
