Riverstown teens charged for robbery with violence

Two teenagers from Riverstown Village on the Essequibo Coast were slapped with a robbery with violence charge to which they pleaded not guilty when they appeared before Magistrate Sunil Scarce at the Suddie Magistrate’s Court.

The duo, Seewnarine (only name) and Joseph Wilson were granted $40,000 bail each.

It is alleged that on June 14, 2016, they robbed Kowsal Mohanlall of $15,000 and immediately thereafter used personal violence against him.

Mohanlall, a security guard, was working the night shift when he was attacked by the teens and robbed.

The teenagers’ mothers were present in court.

As a condition of bail, the teens are expected to report to the Suddie Police Station every Saturday. The case will continue on July 1.
