The two teenagers are accused of robbing Jamar Powlett of $427 on September 6.

However, they both pleaded not guilty to the offence and were each granted $3,000 bail.

Station Sergeant Neville Watson, who prosecuted the case, did not object to their bail but requested that Batson be placed on a curfew and be made to present himself to a police station.

“Based on his antecedents and [the fact] that he is not working we need to keep him in check,” Watson said.

Both men were placed on a 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew. However, only Batson would be required to report to a police every Wednesday before 10 a.m.

They return to the No. 2 Magistrates’ Court on November 23.
