Accused robber remanded due to failure to meet bail
Twenty-four year old Andre Cadle, accused of robbing twenty-four year old Chedrack Slusher, is on remand at the Central Prison tonight after an unusual day in court. Cadle was expected to be freed when Slusher told the court that he no longer wanted to pursue the matter. But Magistrate Emmerson Banner instead offered him bail of six thousand dollars because the complainant who appeared in court had no identification cards to prove that he was in fact Chedrack Slusher. Unfortunately for Cadle, before his relatives could secure bail, he had already been escorted to prison, where he will remain until October twenty-first when the case goes back to court. He was charged with Robbery and Wounding in connection with a report that he placed a knife at Slusher’s throat and robbed him of a chain, wrist watch and a pound of tobacco leaves. Cadle also allegedly stabbed Slusher before he took off. The alleged incident occurred through Majestic Alley at around two p.m. on Monday.
