A 25-year-old La Romaine man who allegedly raped a woman during a robbery at her home has been denied bail.

T’shad Brewster, of Pemberton Street, appeared in the San Fernando Magistrates Court charged with four offences arising from that incident.

He also faced two additional charges stemming from a separate robbery.

It is alleged that he and another person robbed the 51-year-old woman of $485, a pair of gold earrings valued $200, a pendant and chain valued $11,000 and a $4,000 bera at her home on June 6.

It is alleged that they also assaulted her 56-year-old brother with intent to rob him. It is further alleged that Brewster raped the woman and committed grievous sexual assault against her.

Brewster was charged by PC Crawford. He is also jointly charged with Aaron Moses, 18, of Ethel Street, La Romaine, with robbing two men in La Romaine on May 31.

The victims had gone there to inquire about a Facebook advertisement of a vehicle for sale. Instead, they were accosted by two men, armed with a gun and knife, who robbed them of two phones together valued $9,000 and $512 cash. The charges were laid by PC Basdeo.

Brewster was arrested in San Fernando on Monday while Moses was arrested in La Romaine on Tuesday.

Second Court Magistrate Alicia Chankar remanded them into custody for the police to determine if they had been previously charged with any other offences. They are expected to reappear in court on July 20.
