Woman robs elderly man
Quanelle Laticha Best, 29, of Gemswick, will reappear in the District ‘C’ Magistrates’ Court before acting Chief Magistrate Christopher Birch on November 2.
The unemployed woman was not required to plead to the indictable charge of robbing Merville Pollard of a Barbados identification card and $800 on October 20, or causing serious bodily harm to Pollard on the same date, with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him.
Sergeant Azel Skeete objected to bail on the grounds that Pollard was still hospitalized and the offences were serious.
The prosecutor also said that his latest report suggested that Pollard, reportedly in his 60s, “has to be assisted”.
Best was represented by attorney-at-law Mohia Ma’at.
