Woman robs elderly man

COURT TODAY BLOCKA St Philip woman was remanded to HMP Dodds yesterday after appearing in court on charges of robbing and causing serious bodily harm to an 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.

    She is a callous monster. She should spend time in prison for her crime.

    There is no excuse for robbing anyone, no matter how hard things are with a person. There is always someone who will reach out and help if a person in need reach out to others. The violence in crime is a mindset of dominance over the victim. When people commit such crime they should be punished.

    This is really bad. Leave the elderly alone, I am certain, he did no harm to you. You really deserve to be in Dodds. I hope you sit and think of the foolish act you did, repay him, and ask for forgiveness. You need to go and work for what you need, go out there and be independent, go and make something worthwhile of your life, you are yet young, but it is obvious that you are on the wrong track, but , note, its not too late to make a change.
