Police have charged Jerroy Phillips, 22, a fisherman, of Redemption Sharpes, with attempted robbery.

Phillips is a suspect in last week shooting death of a woman in Hollywood, Redemption Sharpes.

Phillips allegedly attempted to rob a 65-year-old businessman of Mc Kies Hill and in the process of doing so attempted to shoot the said businessman with a gun, at Mc Kies Hill about 2 p.m. on Sept. 19.

Phillips was also charged with boxing a 19-year-old bus conductor of Redemption Sharpes on his upper lip, causing him actual bodily harm about 5:30 p.m. on Oct. 6.

Phillips made national headlines last week after police issued a wanted bulletin for him in connection with the murder last week Wednesday, in Redemrption Sharpes of Sabitree Lyttle, a 56-year-old domestic of the Central Kingstown community.

Lyttle was shot at her home, where her family also operates a provision shop.

In March, Phillips along with co-accused, Anthony Hope, 16, of Belair, averted immediate jail terms after Senior Magistrate Rickie Burnett heard submissions from lawyer Grant Connell and pastor Cecil Richards.

The magistrate sentenced the men to four-year jail terms suspended for 18 months, after they pleaded guilty to burglary and damage to property.

They had pleaded guilty to a charge that on Feb. 18, in Kingstown, without lawful excuse, they damaged three commercial glass and aluminium doors — value EC$1,245; one white HR Dome surveillance camera — value EC$750, one show window glass — value EC$700 and one iron gate — value EC$200, total value, EC$3,645, the property of St. Hill Insurance Ltd., intending to damage such property.

The men were also ordered to compensate St. Hill Insurance Company Ltd. in the sum of $3,645 as for damage done to St. Hill Insurance Business Centre, located on Grenville Street, Kingstown.
