Off to jail

Caesar accused of robbing not one but two schoolboys

A 20-year-old man who allegedly robbed a 15-year-old schoolboy last Friday was jailed today after he breached a court order.

Rawle Anthony Caesar, who has no fixed place of abode, is accused of robbing the 15-year-old of a $200 bracelet and a $200 bangle on October 6. He was not required to plead to the offence as it is alleged that a firearm was used during the crime.

However, it was not that charge that landed him in jail today but one which occurred on June 9 when he robbed another schoolboy of a $300 cellular phone.

Station Sergeant Glenda Carter-Nicholls said the victim was walking along Montrose Road, Christ Church around 3 p.m., when two men approached him.

The men grabbed him, with one pushing his hand in the child’s pocket. The schoolboy held onto his pocket but subsequently released it after being cuffed in the stomach. The culprits then ran away while the boy who informed his parents of the situation was taken to the police station.

Caesar was detained earlier this week and interviewed, but denied any knowledge of the incident. However, the boy picked him out in a police identification parade yesterday.

“I was there but I didn’t rob him. I didn’t take the cellular phone and I don’t know where the phone went but I plead guilty because I was there,” Caesar told Magistrate Elwood Watts in the Oistins Magistrates’ Court today.

“Hog is pork,” Watts replied, explaining to Caesar that he was part of a joint enterprise.

“It is the same thing as if you did the deed yourself,” the magistrate added.

As a result of today’s guilty plea, Caesar, who was handed a suspended prison sentence on February 8 last year for theft, will have to spend the next six months behind bars.

He was also ordered to compensate the schoolboy for the $300 phone by October 16 or he will have to spend an extra month at HMP Dodds.

A family member who was present in court today assured the magistrate that the money would be paid by then.

Caesar returns to court on November 8  in connection with the October 6 offence. The prosecutor revealed that another man was being sought in connection with that case.

    Coward who robs school boys, not big enough to rob men. Needs a few months hard Labour along with hotel Dodds

  4. janettr reifer October 13, 2017 at 12:12 am

    What is so wrong with hard labour for these mule donkey criminals?
    All you doing is fulling up Dodds with these criminals for taxpayers to feed them to return to society to do a repeat. What are they giving back to society apart from being a menace and a lost cause?
    It time to make these brainless criminals really feel to the bone. The Magistrate behaving as though these cases are football or cricket matches. Make these criminal giddy as though they have vertigo when they walk out the court.

      Its amazing how none of u all read the first part where i said anyone should be able to wear anything and just jumped right to the ending im just saying wen i was going school when snapbacks was in style if u were wearing one there was a 70% chance it wud get snatched so im just saying criminals see children as “soft targets” and snatch their phones and expensive things anyone with common sense knows a criminal will break in a two storey house with a benz outside than a wooden shack if u all dont understand that oh well

    I am glad this child’s case was proven because when the story of the robbery was first released, some of those commenting doubted the boy. Now we are seeing the another boy was robbed as well

    Glad he was caught but why during the school week he has on $400 in jewellery it’s not even a watch unless he was trying to impress a girl and unfortunately end up being robbed . Smh

    School boys loaded these days.. not saying he deserved to be robbed. Another one going prison and getting fat off the tax payers, no punishment whatsoever the system is a joke

      Why would you think he is going to get fat .is there anything great food up there not like he going to prison in Sweden or norway or Europe

    • Adrian Allison
      Adrian Allison October 13, 2017 at 6:41 am

      I agree with you Larry Thompson because there is a great misconception that Dodds Prison is a nice place to be but nothing can be farther from the truth. We listen to a lot of idle talk of past offenders who have been there who through embarassment spins this story that you are entitled to three square meals allowing one to get ‘fat’. The reality is that Glendairy Prison was a day in the park compared to the St Philip institution and only a fool would want to go there as an inmate.
      Embarassment is the main reason some of foolish ex-cons concoct these absurd stories of the grandeur of prison stay.

    I think the Law is too lenient with these criminals. It’s time to start initiating some good hard labour in them backside for crimes like those

    • Adrian Allison
      Adrian Allison October 13, 2017 at 6:48 am

      Not the law Margaret, what is lenient is the Courts………..there is a huge difference.
      No wonder there are so many frustrated and disgruntled police officers in Barbados because nine out ten times the police investigates, arrest and brings these criminals before the courts, the prosecutor does his job as well but the problem asserted itself when some of these bleeding-hearted judges dish out these light sentences like there are appetizers and quite forgetting to give a full meal afterwards.

    It is time that people like him get some hard labour. He wants sendin to dig rock out of a quarry by hand. Then he will learn his lesson.

    • Adrian Allison
      Adrian Allison October 13, 2017 at 6:56 am

      That is the problem I have with the prison system in Barbados.
      These parasites need to work while in prison to sustain themselves, to compensate the justice system for their time in prosecuting them and in restitution for their victims .
      That is what I consider paying their debt to society, anything less is just a paid vacation with restrictions.

    It seems on this island since I’ve moved over here from’s just about stealing,taking ,asking you for money,..For me I’ve been warned over and over ..: Don’t have anyone in your house,don’t walk around with a bag,don’t wear any jewellery..Even got items stole from my home when I moved from one part of here to where I am now from the removal company in St George..I was recommended to them,so that means nothing..When my boxes were emptied after about 2 weeks..Yes surprise surprise a good few items were gone..Im usually a very friendly person but I dare not make a friend in 8 months here..I would Love to go to a church,but I would have no idea who I’m standing next to..What I’ve learnt about going to Church here is that people have got to go to clear there conscience ..Well for at least 1 week..then of again the following week and ask for forgiveness again ..then repeat…I do give them guts though..Talk about Taking Micky out of God..How people who have the nerve to walk in a house of God..I will never know..I know one very well..His words were just a few weeks ago..: I’m worse than anyone! Isn’t it a classic? Yep he goes every week..but doing nothing by the book!! So this man who stole from this young lad..No it’s very bad, but it would have been a lot worse had he followed up and gone to church to try and put it right by God..Like all these other false people do.So Yes punish him for what he done..I agree with that..But God will favour him more for not trying to suck up to him..It’s the others that do that have got to be careful..As they say..: Many are called..few are chosen..One day I will get to a church here for the right reasons..not because I’ve done something bad ..Then go! I just wouldn’t have the nerve to..Still I give credit to you all that do bad in your heads and Heart by pinching,stealing ,using people,for there own needs ..So all I can say is God please make allowances for these people’s heads..Im thankful I pray every night in my home and in the morning say ..Thank you for waking up.Thats me being a Christian..Oh and the word Honesty..Again I know a great believer of Church on this island for many years who held it against me for being honest..Hasn’t spoke to me since ..because of that word Honesty ..Classic again AH!

    Lady, you need to stop listening to my family business, lol.
    This is exactly what I told my son while he was growing up. If he ever found himself arrested for some criminal act and he knows that he’s guilty then he needs to tell law enforcement the truth, that he has no fixed place of abode because honestly, his father would have been kicking his ass out, period.

    This story is so sad for a number of reasons,there are too many people who come before the courts,who have no fixed place of abode,which is an indication,that homelessness is increasing in this country.
    Then as an adult you chose to join with someone else to rob a school child,too many able bodied young men are resorting to such measures to deal with underlined problems in their lives.
    The other person who helped robbed the boy needs to be charged as well.
    These men need to go and work and learn how to take care of themselves,however what is a school boy doing with a 300 dollar cell phone?this is an indication of how far parents will go to please their kids,but all having an expensive phone is going to do is attract more thieves, I would have left that phone at home,and given the child a cheaper phone,but I think there is a lot of competition for kids to fit in to a certain bracket,but is it worth their life?

    He will surely find the Magistrate’s words true as he enters Dodds Prisons, “Hog is pork”.
