A 20-year-old man accused of trying to snatch a seven-year-old girl was yesterday remanded to prison.
Alexander Coakley, of 73C Wulff Road, faced a charge of attempted child stealing when he appeared before Magistrate Kara Turnquest-Deveaux.
Prosecutors allege that Coakley attempted to steal the girl on March 30, 2021.
Coakley was not required to enter a plea to the charge.
His next court appearance is on July 29 when it is expected that prosecutors will present a voluntary bill of indictment, which will send the case to the Supreme Court for trial.
Coakley is represented by Quentin Percentie. Sergeant Sherquelle Forbes prosecuted.
