Three years jail for youth found guilty of robbing duo on seawall
A 21-year-old labourer was on Thursday sentenced to serve three years imprisonment by City Magistrate Rhondel Weaver after he was found guilty of two robbery offences.
Ceon Ray of Sussex Street, Campbellville and Albouystown was found guilty of robbing Tyrell Chu of a quantity of items amounting to $17,000 on June 15, 2019, at Kingston, Georgetown.
He was also found guilty of robbing Ishan Singh of a cell phone and cash valued $56,500 on the same day and location.
Magistrate Weaver sentenced Ray to three years jail on each count but ordered that the sentences run concurrently which means he will only serve three years behind bars.
The court heard that on the day in question, the victims were on the Kingston seawalls having lunch when they were attacked and robbed by Ray and his accomplice.
A nearby Police patrol responded to the scene and apprehended the two men with the stolen items in their possession.
The accomplice, Navin Ally, had pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced to two and a half years imprisonment.
