…owner identifies them and his bike after photos were released
According to reports from the police, the duo responsible for the murder of electrician Joshua Denny committed another robbery and assault on a man in Campbellville prior to their demise following a confrontation with the police on the night of October 2.
On October 4, a 40-year-old man from Lodge visited the police and reported that on September 27, 2021, at about 19:30 hours, he was in the Campbellville area where he was beaten and robbed by the men.
According to the man, he sustained injuries to his lower abdomen and was relieved of GYD$25,000 cash, a Samsung Galaxy A20 phone valued GYD$28,000 and his black HAOJUE UF-115 motorcycle bearing registration number CK 8784 valued at GYD$200,000.
The alleged robbery victim said that it was only after images of the men — Quacy Jupiter and David Smith — were released by the police on social media, that he recognized his motorcycle being used by the criminals and immediately informed the police at Prashad Nagar.
On the date, the man was shown the Samsung Galaxy cellphone retrieved from Jupiter along with the motorcycle found and he identified both items as the items he was robbed of.
Jupiter and Smith were fatally shot by the police during a confrontation last Saturday evening in the vicinity of UG Access Road. Further investigations are in progress.
