A 20-year-old man who was recently found guilty of an offence and sentenced to community service was yesterday charged with armed robbery.

Shiva Khadier of East Ruimveldt, Georgetown, appeared before Senior Magistrate Leron Daly in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.

It is alleged that on August 11 at Kitty Seawall, Georgetown, while being armed with a knife, he robbed Jones Sealey of a phone valued at $46,000, a bag valued at $36,000 and $15,000 in cash.

Khadier pleaded not guilty to the charge after it was read to him. He was represented by attorney-at-law Paul Fung-a-Fat who asked that his client be released on reasonable bail.

However, Police Prosecutor Traceyann Gittens made serious objections to bail being granted to the defendant.

The Prosecutor told the court that Khadier was found guilty of an offence on July 17, 2019 and was sentenced to community service by the magistrate after he agreed to repay the victim.

Hence, the magistrate remanded him to prison until September 11.
