Man who was shot by police for disorderly behaviour remanded

Mark Moseley

The man who was shot in his leg late last month by a police officer was on Tuesday remanded to prison when he appeared before Magistrate Annette Singh.

Mark Moseley, of Lot 94 Charlotte Street, Georgetown, had the charges brought against him read when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.

It is alleged that on April 28 2017 at Robb Street, Georgetown, while being armed with a knife, he robbed Jamelle Azeez of $1000.

However, the second charge is alleging that on the same day at the City Constabulary, Regent Street, Georgetown, the defendant behaved disorderly so as to cause an Officer to discharge a round at him.

The man’s Attorney, made a bail application, noting that her client is a father two young children.

She also highlighted that currently the defendant is seeking medical attention because of the gunshot wound to his foot and as such is not a flight risk.

However, the Police Prosecutor objected to bail being granted disclosing to the Magistrate that the defendant had  similar offenses against him.

The most recent of those was on March 3, where he was charged with simple larceny.

The Prosecutor disclosed that the matter was dismissed after the Virtual Complainant (VC) failed to offer evidence.

He also revealed to the Court that Moseley is known to the Police for “creating havoc” by way of robberies.

He informed that the defendant frequently travels to Suriname which makes him a flight risk.

Magistrate Singh denied bail telling Moseley that she remembers him from previous charges. He will return to Court on May 29.
