Green was convicted of robbery, 22 D.C.CODE 2901 (1967), and assault with intent to commit robbery, 22 D.C.CODE 501 (1967). The principal questions raised on this appeal relate to alleged trial court error in permitting the prosecutor to impeach the defendant with cross-examination respecting a prior conviction of assault and in permitting the prosecutor to impeach a defense witness with cross-examination respecting her chastity. While these issues would require serious consideration1 if properly raised in the trial court, in the circumstances of this case we will not notice them for the first time on appeal.
