Hours after an attempted murder charge was read to construction worker Linden Flavious, he was moments ago slapped with two armed robbery charges.
Thirty-one-year-old Flavious of Agricola, East Bank Demerara, had appeared earlier today in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts where he, along with another man, was charged with the attempted murder of a taxi driver.
In his second appearance for the day, this time before Magistrate Faith McGusty, Flavious was accused of, on July 10 at Georgetown while being in the company of others and armed with a gun, robbing Ramserran Ramsook of a phone valued at $78,000 and $140,000 in cash.
It was further alleged that on the same day and at the same location, Flavious, while being in the company of others and armed with a gun, robbed Allan Shaw of a bag valued at $22,000 and $11,000 in cash.
While the prosecutor did not disclose facts in the matters, she asked that the defendant be remanded to prison on the grounds on the serious nature of the offence and the penalty of the charges. She also told the court that the defendant was positively identified by the victims.
The magistrate, after listening to the facts, remanded Flavious to prison until July 31.
This morning, Flavious and Ornest James were slapped with a joint attempted murder charge.
They were not required to plead to the indictable charge which stated that on July 11, 2019, at John Fernandes Squatting Area, they unlawfully and maliciously wounded Derick Nelson with the intent to commit murder. They were remanded for the offence.
