Licensed firearm holder shoots robber
A St James man who reportedly tried to rob a licensed firearm holder and got shot for his trouble was offered bail when he came before the St James Parish Court on Wednesday, February 6.
Alroy Davis, who is charged with assault with intent to rob, was offered bail in the sum of $150,000 when he appeared before Parish judge Sandria Wong-Small.
It is alleged that on October 11, 2018, Davis attacked the complainant with a knife and demanded money from him. A struggle ensued between the men, and the complainant pulled his firearm and shot Davis in the arm. Davis was subsequently taken into custody and charged.
During Davis' court appearance, Wong-Small observed that the defendant had been to court on previous charges.
"Mr Davis, you are coming here too often," Wong-Small addressed the accused man.
"Dem wrongly accused me this time," Davis replied.
"As far as I see, you are always wrongly accused," Wong-Small quipped.
Following a subsequent bail application by Davis' attorney, Suwayne Phillips, Wong-Small granted bail to the defendant in the sum of $150,000 with three sureties. He was also ordered to report to the police daily, and a curfew order was imposed for him to be at home from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily.
The case will be heard again on March 20.
