[www.inewsguyana.com] – A 29-year-old man of Lot 687 East Ruimveldt, Georgetown, who escaped from lawful custody, was on Tuesday April 07, remanded by Magistrate Fabayo Azore.
Quacy Glasgow pleaded not guilty to the charge, which stated that on February 27, he escaped while in lawful custody for a robbery under arms charge.
Glasgow told the court that he was heading home from work when the police confronted and physically assaulted him by cranking a gun. According to Glasgow, he then pushed the policeman off of him and escaped on foot because he was not aware of what was happening. The police then chased Glasgow when he was caught and arrested.
Assistant Superintendent of Police Stephen Telford objected to bail, stating that the accused is currently facing three matters of robbery under arms. He also told the court that if bail is granted, it is likely that Glasgow will not return for his trial.
The matter was adjourned to April 13.
