A Sion Hill man cried openly outside the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court on Monday over a phone that a woman allegedly stole.

“I don’t know why she did this to me!” Artudo Jones said.

“I don’t know why she did this to me. Seriously. I don’t know, why me? Why? Why? Why me?” he said.

Jones has accused Roxy Baptiste of stealing his cellular phone, after he asked her to charge it.

 Baptiste appeared  at the same court, also on Monday and pleaded not guilty to the charge that on the same day, at Georgetown, she stole one Samsung Z Fold cellular phone and its case, valued at US$1,140, Jones’ property.

At the end of day’s sitting, the defendant had not secured a surety.

Jones, who is scheduled to leave for the United States on March 8, said  he could not make contact with anyone.

“Thing is it you know, all my numbers, it come like I don’t know nothing, I have to go back to work, I have a lot to do. Me and she, we don’t have nothing, first time I come out here (Georgetown),” Jones said as he cried outside the court.

“My whole life on that phone and the thing is, if I did get me vaccine card — to be honest, I don’t even have nothing, I don’t even know how I am going back to the States.”

“I can’t call nobody, too. All my bills, I pay my bills using my phone — everything on my phone; every single thing,” Jones said.

  1. Is the fact that he cried really important enough to be the headline AND a photo?

    What’s your goal? To humiliate him internationally?

  2. I feel you bro. We in an age where everything is on our phone. I hope you back up everything on your iCloud if it’s an iPhone. People steal phone is so petty and selfish. Good luck brother.

  3. little advice to GOOGLE BRAIN DRAIN

    The Modern Technological and The Education Revolution system put us on Google platform that erases all common sense from our brain. (No thinking cap) The lesson is very painful seeing big man cry

    (1) Dumb mistake to rely on your phone (2) phone circuitry can malfunction and software corrupted
    (3) steal or Lost (4) Putting all your vital information on it can lost forever.

    Back up:

    When travelling buy a cheap phone: All phone is the same with the right apps.

    Hard copy place in your luggage; Written down on paper.

    Cloud storage (Google Drive, One Drive) very important can get back on track with all your info: from any phone, computer, tablet from anyplace when sign into that platform.

    Back up your documents on a MicroSD card, which you can walk with, place in a new phone, and get your info.

    My two cents
