Two 17-year-olds — Judah Roberts and Sanchea Douglas — appeared in Magistrates Court this morning [Aug 10] charged with the 4th August group attack on a man in the Rambling Lane area.
They join three other people — one a 14-year-old – who have now appeared before the Court in relation to the assault and robbery, which happened in front of the victim’s two children aged 4 and 10 and left the 33-year-old victim in the ICU.
Douglas and Roberts were charged with the indictable offences of robbery with violence and of assault with the intent to do grievous bodily harm. They did not have to plead to the charges, as the matter can only be heard in the Supreme Court.
Magistrate Tyrone Chin heard the lawyer’s submissions and remanded both teenagers in custody. One lawyer asked that that the two should be sent to the COED facility, but the Magistrate told the lawyer that the decision as to which facility would house the two was a decision best left to the Prison Authorities.
The two re-appear for mention on 17th August 2012.
