Dwight David, who stands accused of committing a $30,000 a gun-point robbery, is now a remanded prisoner after being denied bail.
David, 20, of 36 West Ruimveldt, Georgetown, denied that he in the company of others and armed with a gun, robbed Akeem Gittens of two cellular phones on May 6.
Police Prosecutor Seon Blackman told city magistrate Faith McGusty that David and his accomplices approached Gittens. He said David pulled out the weapon and stole the phones. He added that it was only after the defendant was pointed out by Gittens on May 8, and following a brief chase, that the police apprehended David.
Blackman objected to bail, citing the seriousness and nature of the crime, as well as the likelihood that David may not show up to answer the charge.
As a result, Magistrate McGusty subsequently remanded David and adjourned the case for May 30.
