National chess champ on attempted robbery charge

National chess champion Wendell Meusa yesterday found himself in a city court accused of committing an assault with intent to rob.

Meusa, 25, of Lot 142 Guyhoc Park, was released on $150,000 bail after denying that he committed the alleged assault on Sheliza Mohammed on June 15, at High Street.

He was unrepresented and made an application for bail on his own behalf.

Mohammed, the complainant, was present at the hearing with visible signs of injury to her head and elbow. But no details pertaining to the crime were related to the court by Prosecutor Joel Ricknauth.

Ricknauth did not object to bail, which was granted by Magistrate Judy Latchman, who fixed the next date for the case as July 2, pending the filing of statements.
