The woman who allegedly attempted to rob the Golden Grove Service station in June this year will have to wait another two months for her case to proceed.

Shadesha Phillip made her first appearance before Magistrate Conliffe Clarke in the St John’s Magistrates’ Court in July charged with attempted robbery.

       The 23-year-old Gray’s Farm woman is said to be one of two assailants who allegedly attempted to rob a female pump attendant on June 24.

        On that day, the police are said to have responded to the report and were fired upon.

According to reports, during the exchange of fire, Phillip was shot and was treated at the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre for a gunshot wound to her leg.

Footage from the gas station was later circulated showing two persons attempting to rob the establishment.

When Phillip first appeared, she was remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison as the magistrate does not have jurisdiction to grant bail, and Phillip is still behind bars to this day.

She is expected to return to court on January 11 2022 to find out if there is enough evidence against her to send her case up to the High Court.
