The second man who was severely beaten by residents of North Ruimveldt after he and his alleged accomplice Patrick Goodluck attempted to rob a resident from the community, was on Wednesday remanded to prison.
Twenty one-year-old Collis Amos of Sophia appeared before by Magistrate Judy Latchman and pleaded not guilty to the charge of attempting to commit robbery under-arms on Roger Lovell.
On Monday, 22-year-old Goodluck also of Sophia was remanded to prison after being charged with this same offence.
It was alleged that on the same day, at Georgetown, Amos had a .9mm pistol in his possession when he was not the holder of a firearm license. Amos, who was unrepresented by an attorney pleaded not guilty to this charge.
Amos and Goodluck were instructed to return to court on September 6, when they will appear before the Chief Magistrate.
In a statement about the incident, the Police Force said that they are investigating an alleged attempted robbery under arms by two males, one of whom was armed with a handgun.
Investigations revealed that Lovell was at home sleeping when he was awakened by the men, who demanded cash and jewelry.
When the victim refused, he was beaten about his head and body.
During the process, he made an alarm and a group of public- spirited individuals from the community responded and managed to disarm the gunman. They then inflicted a severe beating on the intruders.
