Ministry of Public Security worker charged with armed robbery
A 25-year-old Office Assistant attached to the Ministry of Public Security appeared before Magistrate Faith McGusty on Monday on a charge of armed robbery.
Shaquille Duncan of Festival City, South Ruimveldt Gardens, Georgetown pleaded not guilty to the charge which alleged that on February 5, 2019, at Mandela Avenue, while being armed with a gun, robbed Morris Enmore of a gold chain valued at $100,000.
According to the facts presented in court by Police Prosecutor Quinn Harris, on the day in question, Enmore was at the Mandela Avenue and Plaza Bridge Super Bet Outlet, when he was approached by Duncan and another person.
Harris explained that Duncan snatched Enmore’s gold chain from off his neck and attempted to escape but was caught by public-spirited persons.
Duncan was accidentally shot to his left shoulder by his alleged accomplice who intended to shoot public-spirited citizens who were chasing them after the robbery.
Magistrate McGusty ruled in the prosecution’s favour and remanded Duncan to prison until March 18, 2019.
Duncan is currently before Principal Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus for a similar charge.
