The two men who were taken into police custody after they had allegedly hijacked a motor car, HB 6228, on Tuesday, last, appeared yesterday before Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court, to answer to related charges.
It is alleged that the duo, Marlon Bobb, 20, of 707 East Ruimveldt and Kadeem Duggan, 19, of 2026 Humming Bird Street, Festival City, North Ruimveldt, robbed Carlton Jerrick of one Toyota motor car valued at $1.3M, and at the time of, or immediately before or after the robbery, they used violence against the complainant.
Duggan, a student of School of the Nations, and Bobb, both pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Police Prosecutor Vishnu Hunte stated, on June 28 at about 19:55 hours, Jerrick was working his taxi cab in the vicinity of KFC on Vlissengen Road when he was stopped by the suspects who asked to be taken to D’Urban Backlands.
Hunte told the court that Bobb sat in the front passenger seat while Duggan sat in the back seat of the car. Jerrick then turned east into Jamoon Drive, Meadowbrook Gardens, when the two accused ordered him to stop. Bobb then came out of the car and went around to the driver’s side and cuffed Jerrick several times as he was being choked by Duggan from behind. Jerrick was pulled out of the car and the two made good their escape.
The court was told that a report was made and quick response by police ranks on patrol led to the recovery of the car and the capture of the two men at Herstelling, East Bank Demerara.
The victim then positively identified the perpetrators and as a result they were cautioned, arrested and charged with the offence.
The prosecution objected to bail.
The duo was remanded and they are expected to make their next court appearance on July 14.
