A MAN is behind bars after allegedly stealing a woman’s purse at gunpoint at a bus stop on Carmichael Road last week.
Two civilians reportedly detained the suspect before police arrested him.
Magistrate Kara Turnquest-Deveaux charged Presley Vildor, 40, with armed robbery.
Vildor, while armed with a black handgun, allegedly robbed Laleene Presume of her pink purse as she waited at a bus stop on Carmichael and Lazaretto Roads around 6.20am on November 30.
Two male bystanders then reportedly caught the accused and held him until police arrived.
Ms Presume’s purse with $3 cash and a $350 black Samsung S-21 phone was returned to her.
Vildor was told that his matter would be transferred to the Supreme Court through a voluntary bill of indictment (VBI). The accused will be sent to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services until the higher court grants him bail.
The VBI is set for service on February 23, 2024.
