Thursday, August 14, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: 21 year old unemployed Kenrick Longsworth of Castle Street in Belize City is accused of two separate incidents in the last month.
He appeared before Magistrate Hettie Mae Stuart today on charges of attempted murder, dangerous harm, use of deadly means of harm and robbery in connection with the attempted robbery of the P-Clinic Pharmacy and Fruit and Vegetable Market on West Canal and Church Street on July 13.
Two men entered the facility that Sunday morning around 10:00 a.m. and demanded that cashier Fatima Figueroa, 23, open the cash register.
She refused to do so and was shot in the left side of the abdomen.
The robbers then stole a sling purse from a customer identified as 38 year teacher Cherry Flowers, which contained her keys, passport, a cell phone and $400 cash.
Longsworth is separately accused of breaking into the home of Antuanetta Gillett at the Fresh Pond Site in Burrell Boom on August 11 and stealing $6,214 in household items including Playstation games, computers and laptops, cell phones, flash drives and a 32-inch flatscreen RCA television set as well as 100 Mexican pesos, equivalent to BZ$20.
Longsworth pleaded not guilty to the robbery and burglary which are non-indictable offences and was remanded until his next court appearance on September 25.
