A second man has appeared in court charged with the alleged attempted robbery of Arsenal footballer Sead Kolasinac in Hampstead.

Jordan Northover, 26, is accused of attempting to rob Kolasinac of an item of "value unknown" at Platts Lane on July 25 this year.

Northover, whose address was given as HMP Wealstun in West Yorkshire, is also charged with threatening full-back Kolasinac, 26, with a weapon, namely a "long metal object", on the same date.

He appeared at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court on Friday, but did not enter a plea.

Northover, who sat in the dock wearing a grey jumper, spoke only to confirm his name, age and address.
