North Ruimveldt home invader remanded
By Leroy Smith
One of the two bandits who invaded the home of Roger Lovell at Lot 2977 Well Road, North Ruimveldt on Wednesday, August 17, 2016 was today remanded for Robbery under Arms.
22-year-old Patrick Goodluck appeared before Magistrate Judy Latchman to answer to the charge which read that he attempted to commit a felony; that is while being armed with a gun, he attempted to rob Roger Lovell.
The court heard that Goodluck along with another man went the home of Roger Lovell and attempted to rob him of a gold chain and a CG motorcycle when relatives of Lovell and members of the community responded and put a thrashing on the suspects.
Goodluck of Sophia was represented by attorney-at-Law Paul Fung-A-Fat who asked the magistrate to consider bail in a reasonable sum for his client. The bail was refused and the man ordered to return to court on September 07, 2016.
The court also heard that the young man has several injuries to his body including his head, face, eyes and mouth which he suffered at the hands of the persons who turn out to assist the victim of the robbery.
The Prosecution told the court that the man along with another invaded the home of the victim armed with a gun. It was also noted that prior to the robbery the man was seen in the area roaming.
His lawyer told the court that his client was in the area to visit a friend and his mere presence upset the persons in the community who pounced on him.
Goodluck is said to be missing four of his teeth and five others are shaking as a result of the beating that he sustained. Additionally, he is said to have no children or wife and works as at sawmill in the city. His address was given as T 72 North Sophia.
The other bandit who accompanied the suspect to the location is presently still hospitalised and the court was also told that once the man is discharged, he would be charged and brought before the courts.
