Robbery, assault charges dismissed against duo

Clifton Charles and Jumal Edwards had charges dismissed against them when they appeared before Magistrate Judy Latchman at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts on Wednesday.

They were facing charges which read that on March 6, 2016 at North Road, Georgetown, while being in each other’s company, they robbed Muriel Trebecky, a Spanish National of $209,000 and other items including her passport.

They were also facing a charge which read that on the same day at the same location, they assaulted Trebecky with intent to case bodily harm.

Trebecky told the court she does not wish to pursue the matter as she would be travelling to Annai, Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo and would just like to have her passport returned.

Edwards told the court that he is not involved in the matter, adding that he was woken out of bed and arrested by Police for the robbery which he had no knowledge of. Magistrate Latchman dismissed the charges against the defendants and ordered that the passport which was recovered to be returned to Trebecky.
