Tribune Staff Reporter


TWO men were arraigned in Magistrate's Court on Friday, charged with two counts armed robbery.

21-year-old Shavano Williams and Shaquille Farrington, 20, appeared before Magistrate Constance Delancey to be charged in connection with the incidents that allegedly occurred between July 25 and August 5.

The men were not required to enter to enter a plea to the charges and the matter was adjourned to October 6 when a preliminary inquiry will be held. Williams and Farrington were remanded to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services until then.

Mr Williams also faced two other counts of armed robbery and six more charges associated with the burglary of a house on August 8.

It's alleged that on July 28, Williams robbed a man of his Chevy Trailblazer vehicle, $10 cash and a cellphone.

On August 5, it's alleged that Williams robbed a female of her cellphone, an iPod music device and her backpack.

He was not required to enter a plea to the charges.

Then on August 8, it's alleged that Williams robbed a home in the Blue Hill Road area. For this incident the defendant faced charges of house breaking, receiving, assault, unlawful threats and damage to property.

Mr Williams entered not guilty pleas to all six charges, and claimed he was "violated" by officers while in custody.

He was remanded to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Service Services until September 7.
