Magistrate Priya Beharry on Wednesday denied bail to Avory Scott, 34, who is charged with the indictable offence of abduction with intent to rob Tracy Daniels.
According to the prosecution, the defendant is a taxi driver, and on the day in question Daniels went to the East Bank Park to catch a taxi.
She reportedly approached the defendant, asked him his price to drop her to the requested destination and was told $400.
Daniels entered the car and Scott reportedly proceeded to go the opposite direction, telling her that he was going to pick up a male friend.
When the male entered the car, Scott allegedly drove to a house and forcefully removed Daniels from the car.
The prosecution added that the woman was taken to a house and when she tried to escape the defendant dealt her a blow to her mouth.
The victim, however, managed to call her sister from her mobile phone. The sister informed the police who responded quickly.
The man was represented by attorney-at-law Michael Sommersaul, who said that what the prosecution said was totally incorrect. He said that the virtual complaint and the defendant both boarded a bus that was heading to Victoria because Daniels had told the defendant that it was late and she had just come from work.
The lawyer said that after the night had passed his client woke up to the police and their allegations that he had abducted Daniels. Bail was nevertheless denied by Magistrate Beharry.
The matter is to reconvene on August 22, 2008.
In the same court Dwayne Braithwaite was granted $100,000 bail for allegedly stealing one pair of gold bangles valued at $80,000 from Samantha Reynolds on August 2, last.
The accused, who said in his defence that he is DVD sales man who resides at 34 Tucville Terrace, will also have to return to court on August 22, next.
