An 18-year-old Norton Street, Georgetown resident was remanded to prison on Monday when he appeared before the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts charged for armed robbery.
Tyron Arthur denied that on February 28, 2018, while being in the company of another, and being armed with a pair of scissors, he robbed Nashawn Bentinck of his cellphone and jewellery valued in total $115,000.
According to Arthur’s Attorney, Tiffany Jeffrey, her client is only guilty of being in the wrong company.
She revealed that the Virtual Complainant (VC), who did not appear in Court, was making arrangements with the teen’s family to settle the matter.
However, after standing down the matter, Magistrate Latchman remanded the teen to prison. The case will be called again on March 19, 2018.
