It was an intense battle outside of the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts for Police Officers as they struggled to transport an accused rapist into the courtroom of Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan, this time charged with robbery.
Samuel George, 27, of Lot A East Ruimveldt Squatting Area, Georgetown, was not required to plead to the charge which read that on March 28, 2016 at East Ruimveldt, Georgetown, he robbed Evelyn Peters of one mobile phone valued $5000 and $18,000 cash.
Police Prosecutor Deniro Jones objected to bail due to the gravity of the offense and due to the fact that the accused has a pending matter in court, that of the rape of a 61-year-old woman.
It was chaos in the courtroom as the defendant threw himself to the ground screaming “not guilty, I didn’t do it’. He claimed that he is being falsely accused of the crime as he was out of the country.
He screamed for President Granger to lend his assistance in proving his innocence.
As a result of his behaviour, Magistrate McLennan remanded him to prison.
He will make his next court appearance on April 14.
