Teen refused bail on robbery with violence charge

Colin Harry was yesterday remanded to prison when he appeared before Magistrate Allan Wilson at the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court on a charge of robbery with violence.

It is alleged that on February 23, Harry, 17, of Lot 17 West Ruimveldt Back Road robbed Arif Rafik of one wallet worth $10,000 and $15,000 using violence against him.

The accused pleaded not guilty and requested bail.

However, the prosecution argued that bail should not be granted on the grounds of the prevalence of the offence and because there was another similar matter with the accused in court.

If allowed bail, the prosecutor said, the accused might not return to court.

He is to return to court on March 15 for statement
