Lowman’s Leeward man charged with robbery and wounding


A LOWMAN’S Leeward resident has been charged with the 2018 robbery and wounding of another.

Dwayne Jacobs, 29, was brought before Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne at the Serious Offences Court yesterday, March 30.

He was charged that he, on December 22, 2018, at Bay Street, Kingstown, robbed Amare Nichols, a 33-year-old resident of Largo Height, of a Huawei cell phone, a phone case and $547 in cash, and in order to do so, used force on Nichols.

On the same date, and in the same place, it was put to Jacobs that he did unlawfully and maliciously wound Nichols.

Although the prosecution did not object to bail being allowed to the accused, who is not yet able to plea to the offences, they asked that certain conditions be attached.

Bail in the sum of $5000 was allowed for Jacobs, and he has to find a surety to sign for this, the chief magistrate decided.

After asking the time the alleged incident occurred, and hearing that it is was reported to have occurred

at 4 am, Browne also placed Jacobs on a curfew.

Additionally, the accused is to have no contact with Nichols, and report to the Questelles police station every week.

His next court date will be July 8.

When he was leaving court, Jacobs tried his best to hide his face from the media, throwing insults as he did so.
