A La Romaine man has been granted $50,000 own bail, after appearing before a San Fernando Magistrate, charged with burglarising the home of a 42-year-old woman, on Sunday 20th May, 2018.
Roger Seunarine, 33, of Woodlands, La Romaine, who is also charged with assault by beating and assault occasioning a wound, appeared before Magistrate Alicia Chankar, at the San Fernando 2nd Magistrates’ Court, on Wednesday 23rd May, 2018, where he pleaded not guilty to the offences.
The matter has been adjourned to Monday 25th June, 2018.
The victim was at her Church Street, La Romaine home with a friend, around 11:30pm on Saturday 19th May, 2018, when a man known to her began banging on the front door, demanding entry into the house.
The victim and her friend hid in a bedroom, but the man and another male suspect, managed to force their way into the house and dealt the victim and her friend several blows about their bodies.
One of the victims’ cellphone was also stolen during the incident.
The victims managed to escape and made a report to the San Fernando Police Station.
An investigation into the incident was subsequently launched, which led to Seunarine’s arrest on Sunday 20th May, 2018, by officers of the San Fernando Criminal Investigations Department (CID). PC Gerard Piper, of the San Fernando CID, laid the charges.
