Attempted robbery, burglary charges

A 41-year-old man was remanded in custody Thursday charged with attempted robbery and burglary following an incident which occurred in the early hours of Saturday morning April 19.

Tyrone Roswell Ebanks, of Powell Smith Drive, will appear back before the court on May 1.

At around 2am, police received information from a security guard that a woman had been assaulted on West Bay Road in the vicinity of Caribbean Club. Police and medics responded and found that a 28-year-old woman had sustained a facial injury.

She told officers a man had punched her in the face and demanded her handbag. She was taken to hospital for treatment.

Following investigations the suspect was arrested a short time later in the vicinity of Villas of the Galleon. The man is also accused of breaking into an apartment at Waters Edge Condos soon after the attempted robbery.
