A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a man who is accused of threatening people with an axe in a Borders village.
Pascal Thuillier-Charmet, who is charged with breach of the peace, failed to turn up at Duns Sheriff Court on Wednesday.
It is alleged that on May the 51-year-old, from France, approached a vehicle in Coldingham, before spitting on the ground and brandishing an axe at its occupants.
According to the complaint, a seven-year-old child was a passenger and witness to the incident in Fishers Brae.
Thuillier-Charmet, who is also charged with being in possession of an offensive weapon, pleaded not guilty to both charges when he appeared at Jedburgh Sheriff Court the day after his arrest.
He was since granted bail but following his non-appearance for an intermediate trial date hearing at Duns, Sheriff Donald Corke issued a warrant for his arrest.
