St Elizabeth man charged for robbery at elderly woman's home
A St Elizabeth man has been charged with burglary and robbery with aggravation following an incident in Top Hill, in the parish on Sunday.
He is 20-year-old Duranny Powell otherwise called 'Zugu', of Top Hill.
The Jamaica Constabulary Force's Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) says about 11:00 p.m., Powell and another man kicked off the door to an elderly woman's house and entered.
Armed with knives, they robbed her of money, jewellery and a washing machine, the CCU says.
Residents apprehended Powell as he tried to leave the community while the other man escaped.
However, the police say on Monday a snap raid was conducted and the second suspect was arrested.
He is awaiting an interview.
