Kent Luwellin who allegedly escaped from a prisons van outside the Siparia court earlier this week, has once more been remanded in prison custody.
Luwellin of Pleasantville was taken to court on Wednesday where Senior Magistrate Joanne Connor read four charges which alleged that on Monday, he escaped police custody, assaulted two police officers in the execution of their duties and damaged a watch belonging to one of the officers.
Acting Inspector Dridgenath Sookraj said three of the charges were laid indictably. Luwellin was not called upon to enter a plea.
On the charge that he damaged the officer’s watch, Luwellin said he was guilty.
Connor adjourned the matters to September 16 and told the defendant that he had a right to apply to a judge for bail.
On Monday after Connor remanded Luwellin into custody on charges of possession of guns and ammunition dating back to 2012, he allegedly kicked an officer in the chest after he was placed in the prisons van.
