Remember Robert Locke? If you don’t, then let us refresh your memory. He is the man who managed to make it on Corozal Police’s wanted list after being accused of rape and most recently for injuring his ex-common law wife and ex mother-in-law. But Locke somehow managed to escape from police.
His luck though, ran out on Holy Thursday when he was captured in the vicinity of Altamira Corozal around midnight. Locke was arrested and charged for Rape, two counts of aggravated burglary, one count of harm and one count of wounding. He was taken to court this afternoon to answer to the charges and was remanded until May 29th when he is scheduled to reappear in court.
The charges of harm and wounding are as a result of a confrontation Locke had with his ex-common-law-wife and her mother. As previously mentioned, in the wee hours of April 16th 2014, Gloria Martinez was awakened by Locke who entered her house without her permission.
Locke accused Martinez of having an affair and then punched her on the left side of the face. Martinez’s mother intervened and Locke went outside the house only to return minutes after with a machete in hand which he used to lash Martinez on the left side of her elbow causing a small abrasion.
Locke then chopped Martinez’s mother on the lower right arm causing a large cut wound.
