Duo on remand for robbing soldier of GDF motorcycle, other items
Two men were on Wednesday remanded after being charged with stealing a Guyana Defence Force (GDF) motorcycle from a soldier.
32-year-old Junior Jordan, a labourer of Non-Pariel Street, Albouystown, and 18-year-old Brandon Robinson of Hunter Street, Albouystown, were hauled before a Magistrate at the Cove and John Magistrate’s Court where they were charged over the robbery committed on Marlon Reynolds, a 23-year-old soldier.
The duo was not required to plea to the charge and the matter was adjourned until November 11, for statements.
The Guyana Police Force said Jordan was arrested on October 3 and Robinson was arrested on October 1.
The 23-year-old soldier was robbed on September 29, at about 00:30hrs at Good Hope, Phase Three, East Coast Demerara, by three men armed with handguns.
It is alleged that Reynolds was in front of his girlfriend’s home when he was confronted by the suspects who drove up in a dark-colour Toyota Vitz motor car.
The driver pointed a suspected AK rifle at him, while another man jumped out from behind the driver’s seat and pointed a small handgun at him.
He was told not to move and they then relieved him of the motorcycle bearing registration number CJ 4308- property of the Guyana Defence Force, an iPhone 8+ valued $80,000 and $15,000 cash.
Two of the suspects escaped in the vehicle while the third suspect jumped on the motorcycle and made good his escape north along Phase Three access road.
