Jamal Warrior, a resident of Orange Walk Town is tonight in police custody after he was brought before Magistrate Carlon Mendoza earlier today on charge of robbery after he reportedly assaulted a sixteen year old minor yesterday morning. The minor reported to police that at around 11:15 a.m. he was approached by two men on bicycles while walking on Meighan Avenue in Belize City. He also told authorities that one of the individuals placed a knife to the left side of his neck while the other took his Apple I-phone from the right pocket of his pants, then both men immediately rode off on their bicycles.
After calling the police to inform them about the incident, both the minor and his father set chase in the father’s vehicle in an attempt to follow the assailants. However, authorities were able to capture Warrior near Finnegan’s Market and after a search was conducted on his person, it led to the discovery of 1.6 grams of cannabis. Warrior pled guilty to the ‘possession of controlled drugs’ and was fined one hundred dollars which is to be paid on the 7th of October, failure to do so will result in one month imprisonment.
When it comes to the charge of robbery, the prosecutor objected to bail due to the fact that the prosecutor is of the belief that Warrior might interfere with the complainant given that he was able to identify Warrior as his attacker. Warrior was also unable to provide the court with a good reason as to why he should be granted any bail and so he was remanded into custody until Friday for bail consideration.
