Three teenagers have been arrested and charged for a September murder.

The three teenagers, all 19-year-olds, were charged on Sunday for the murder of Mickel Berrot.

David Floyd, aka Farmer; Selene Belle aka Mariah and Rivaldo Beckles, all of Kelly Village, Caroni, were charged with murder following the advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions Roger Gaspard SC.

According to a police report, at about 3.51 pm on Friday, September 25, 2020, Mickel Berrot and another man arrived at the Caroni Police Station. Berrot, who was suffering from what appeared to be stab wounds about the body, reported that they were victims of a robbery. Both men were conveyed to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex for medical treatment. However, Berrot succumbed to his injuries whilst undergoing treatment, and was pronounced dead at 8.30 pm on September 25, 2020.

Further enquiries revealed that Berrot and the other man left Curepe after 12 pm on September 25, 2020, in a blue Nissan Tiida and proceeded to Boysie Trace Kelly Village to meet a woman.

Police learnt that upon arrival at Boysie Trace, Kelly Village, the two men parked at the end of a dead end street, and while waiting for the woman, they were approached by two men.

An altercation ensued and Berrot was subsequently wounded. Berrot and the other man then fled the scene and the assailants later escaped with the Tiida vehicle and $50.

The three suspects were due to appear virtually before the Chaguanas Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
