An office assistant at the Ministry of Public Security, who is currently on remand for robbing a man after he was captured when shot to his shoulder by his accomplice, was this morning slapped with another armed robbery charge.

This new charge comes one month after Shaquiel Duncan, 25, of Festival City, South Ruimveldt, Georgetown was remanded for robbing a man of a $360,000 gold chain. Today, he pleaded not guilty to the new charge which stated that on February 1, 2019 at Mandela Avenue, he robbed Morris Enmore of a gold chain valued at $100,000.

He appeared before Principal Magistrate Faith McGusty in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.

Facts presented by Police Prosecutor Quinn Harris stated that on the day in question, the victim was at a Super Bet Outlet on Mandela Avenue and Plaza Bridge when Duncan, who was armed with a gun, snatched a gold chain off his neck and made good his escape.

Harris made serious objections to bail being granted to Duncan, citing that he was positively identified and was caught in the act.

The Magistrate after listening to the Prosecutor’s facts remanded Duncan to prison.

The father of two was instructed to make his next court appearance on March 18, 2019.

Last month, Duncan was charged and remanded for robbing Steve Monroe of one gold chain valued $360,000, after he appeared before Principal Magistrate Sherdel Marcus-Isaacs in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.

According to information, Duncan and another individual, while armed with a gun, snatched a gold chain off Monroe’s neck.

However, public-spirited persons gave chase behind the perpetrators. During that time one of the suspected bandits discharged a round in crowd’s direction.

Unfortunately, one of the bullets struck his alleged accomplice, Duncan, instead.

The wounded suspect was taken into custody by members of the public and handed over to the police.

Duncan’s accomplice managed to escape on a white XR motorcycle, leaving a wounded Duncan behind.
