The Redemption Sharpes youth who was on Thursday charged with attempted robbery and assault has been charged with robbing a man of a loaded gun and other items.

Jerroy Phillips, a 22-year-old fisherman of Redemption Sharpes, was brought before the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court on Monday, where he was charged that on Nov. 1, 2018, at Indian Bay, being armed with a gun, he robbed Osborne Bowens, of Glen, of one brown leather wallet, value EC$150, containing EC$80 in cash, one black and silver Huawei cellular phone, value EC$2,000, one black Glock 19 9 mm pistol — serial number YBK-804 with 15 rounds of ammunition, value EC$3,030 — total value EC$5,260 — and at the time of doing so and in order to do so, put Bowens in fear of being then and there subjected to force.

Phillips was denied bail and was ordered to return to court on Nov. 28, 2018.

He was arraigned on a day that a trial began in a matter in which he and Andre Gibson are charged in connection with the theft of four puppies.

Last week, Phillips was charged that about 2 p.m., on Sept. 19, at Mc Kies, he 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.

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.

He is also a suspect in the Sept. 14 shooting death of Sabitree Lyttle, a domestic, of Redemption Sharpes, whose family operates a provision shop at their home.

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.

  1. This is one frightening walking crime-wave of a fellow! How soon will he be back on the streets to intimidate the neighbourhoods?

  2. Pastor Cecil Richards denied on radio that this was no the young man he spoke to the Magistrate about. Nuff said

  3. What is wrong with this magistrate? He should be locked up himself for giving silly sentences to dangerous people.

    Lets hope they now get the 10 years they deserve.

  4. It seems like this guy just does as he pleases with no consideration for others. If someone is in his way he just pushes them out of the way. I wonder how many of his crimes were not reported? Good decision to keep him detained without bail. I wonder if he got the usual police beating that the low-esteem SVG Police are famous for and most detained people get. This young man actually deserves it based on so much evidence.

  5. Beverly I agree the police should beat the crap out of him even when he goes to jail they should bugger him even in his ear or any openings th hey can find.
