Man on bail after robbing cop at knife-point

Charged: Jomal Jeriah

A 27-year-old man who alleged robbed a policeman appeared before Senior Magistrate Clive Nurse at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court on Monday, facing a charge of robbery under arms.
Jomal Jeriah of Charlotte Street, Georgetown, is accused of committing the robbery on Durban Street, Georgetown, where he allegedly stole a Samsung phone valued at $40,000 and $20,000 from the cop.
During the court proceedings, Jeriah, accompanied by his lawyer, Attorney-at-Law Domnick Bess, entered a plea of not guilty.
Bess, in a bail application said that the evidence provided by the prosecution, including a video of the incident, lacked definitive identification of Jeriah as the perpetrator.
However, the prosecution objected to bail, citing the gravity of the offense and the virtual complaint job as a law enforcement officer. Despite these objections, Magistrate Nurse granted Jeriah $100,000 bail. The case was adjourned to April 29. (G9)
