The accused in court today

…after being on the run for months 

Twenty-nine-year-old Curt Kendal of 474 Section B, Non Pareil, East Coast Demerara (ECD) earlier today (Tuesday) appeared before the Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan after being on the run for several months for attempted murder.

The father of one appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts and denied the charge against him.

That charge alleged that he, on February 3 2017, at Mandela Avenue, Georgetown while in the company of another, discharged rounds at Christopher Marks with attempt to murder him.

Police Prosecutor Arvin Moore objected to bail being granted to the accused revealing to the Court that he has been on the run since March 3 2017.

However, the accused denied this allegation and told Magistrate McLennan that he was out of the country and was unaware that he was wanted by Police.

He explained that it was only until September that he was contacted by his mother who received a summons for his arrest and as such he flew back to Guyana immediately.

He made an application on those grounds. The Chief Magistrate however denied bail and remanded the accused. He is expected to make his next Court appearance on October 17 2017.

His accomplice, Samuel Adams of Sophia, East Coast Demerara (ECD) was back in March charged with the said offense.

He was additionally charged for the attempted robbery of Ramroop Ramnauth of his valuables and for robbing John Bryan of some $3 million on December 6 2016.

Adams is also currently on remand.
