The young man of 59 Durban Street, Lodge pleaded not guilty to the charge when it was read to him. It is alleged that on July 07 in Georgetown he robbed Lashawn Churley of several articles totaling $180,000.

The court heard that the accused also used personal violence against the woman. The Police Prosecutor objected to bail on the grounds that the accused was previously charged with a similar offence, the prevalence and the likelihood that Duke will not return to court for trail.
