[www.inewsguyana.com] – Kevin Lenard (no address given) was yesterday sentenced to 24 months imprisonment on a robbery under arm charge.

The 18-year-old defendant was found guilty to the charge which alleged that on September 15 at High Street, Georgetown, being together with another and armed with a knife he robbed Brian Harry of cash $15,000.

The facts stated that on the day in question around 04:00 am, a dark skin man wearing a white cap scrambled him [Harry] and placed a knife around his belly. The defendant reportedly used that opportunity to remove the cash from the victim’s pants pocket.

Later the defendant saw Harry and two friends sitting on a chair at Front Road Park, in the vicinity of Footsteps’ store and he managed to join a minibus and evade Harry and his friends.

As it turn out the evasion was short live, since the minibus driver drove the said minibus to the Brickdam Police station.

The Court heard that at the Police station, Harry reported the incident and identified the convict as his attacker.

In his defence, the unrepresented man chose to give unsworn statements and decline to call witnesses.

Magistrate Latchman, having considered all the mitigating factors, nature of the offence, prevalence and the need to prohibit the convict and other from committing such offences handed down her sentence.
