first_imgTwenty-year-old Randy Bowen of Lot 184 Duncan Street, Newtown Kitty was on Friday remanded to prison until August 3 after he was arraigned before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan on a charge of robbery under arms.A serving member of the Guyana Police Force, Bowen pleaded not guilty to the charge when it was read to him.It is alleged that on July 25, 2018, while on Regent Street, Georgetown and in the company of another, Bowen attempted to rob Rajkumar Rupa.According to the facts presented to the court, on the day in question, at 14:45h, Rupa was an occupant of a Route 40 minibus, and the duo and another male were also passengers in the bus, when Bowen whipped out a chopper and demanded that Rupa hand over the bag he was carrying.The Prosecution is contending that Rupa refused the demand and hurriedly exited the bus, later making a report to the Brickdam Police Station. The accused was subsequently arrested and charged.Police Prosecutor Gordon Mansfield objected to Bowen being placed on bail, citing the serious nature of the offence.The prosecution’s objections were upheld, and Bowen was remanded.The matter will continue on August 3.last_img read more
