[www.inewsguyana.com] – Euchand Frank of Werk-en-Rust, Georgetown accused of robbery under arms against an off-duty Police Officer, was placed before City Magistrate Dellon Bess to answer to the offense.
It is alleged that on October 24, 2015 at Hadfield Street, Georgetown, being armed with a knife, the 28 – year – old he robbed Police Corporal, Leward Collins of one Digicel Cellular Phone, valued $30,000 and $10,000 cash.
Frank pleaded not guilty, noting that even though he was at the said location on the day in question, he did not have a knife and he was not the one who robbed the virtual complainant.
The Prosecution objected to bail, informing the court that on the day in question, the accused confronted the victim, who was dressed in civilian clothing, held a knife to his throat and robbed him.
Frank, who is a Minibus Conductor, was eventually remanded to prison and is scheduled to make his next court appearance on November 24.
