A man who was previously charged with robbery under-arms and recently caught on camera robbing a Policeman in broad daylight was on Monday charged and released on bail on $300,000 bail.

Shamar Davis, 21, of Guyhoc Squatting Area, Georgetown appeared before Magistrate Dylon Bess at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts. 

It is alleged that on September 24, 2021, at Water Street, Georgetown, he robbed Police officer, Rohan Persaud of one haversack valued at $8,000,  and one phone valued at $50,000. 

The second charge against Davis stated that on May 10, 2021, at Croal Street, Georgetown, while being armed with an offensive weapon, he robbed Stephan Muniram of a cellphone valued at $125,000. 

Davis pleaded not guilty to both charges after they were read to him.

According to reports, on the day in question, the 38-year-old Policeman was robbed at around 6:45h on Water Street, Georgetown. 

This publication understands that the victim was proceeding on the eastern side of Water Street, Georgetown when he was approached from behind by a male wielding a knife. 

The two began to scuffle, before falling to the ground where the suspect cut away the victim’s haversack and made his escape.

The suspect was arrested on the same day at approximately 17:30h on High and Hadfield Streets, Georgetown. At the time of his arrest, he had the stolen haversack in his possession which the Policeman later identified as his belongings.
