In a report to police, Security Guard Elmore Spencer, 26, said that at around 11 a.m. on Wednesday, February 17, he was performing security duties at Moon Superstore on Coney Drive when he was approached by three male persons who came in a black Toyota car. Spencer was standing in front of the store when two of the men exited the vehicle; one wearing a camouflage pants similar to that of the GSU along with a plain white t-shirt and a clipboard in his hand. The other man was wearing a black t-shirt with a combat pants and boots. He had a chrome shotgun in his hand. The men informed him that they were police officers and asked him if he had a security license for the firearm. Spencer told them that they would have to go to the office if they wanted to know that. According to Spencer, when he refused to co-operate the third man opened the door and said something to the man holding the gun. That was when they got into the car and sped off. Spencer was able to see the faces of the three men.

At about 1 p.m. on Sunday, February 21, while Spencer was walking in his security uniform at the corner of Central American Boulevard and Racoon Street, a man dressed in a black cargo pants and white t-shirt rode up to him on a black beach cruiser bicycle and asked him, “Do you remember me. Do you like your job?” Spencer told the man that he did not know him and yes he likes his job. The man then rode off and, fearing for his life, Spencer rushed to the Racoon Street Police Station to report the matter because he recognized the man as the third man in the car. Police launched an investigation into the matter and on Wednesday they picked up Cameron Slusher in the city.

In court, Slusher was unrepresented when he appeared before Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser and pleaded not guilty to the single charge of aggravated assault with a firearm. Slusher told the court that police picked him up for an investigation into an aggravated burglary and after his 48 hours was up he was charged with aggravated assault for pulling a gun on someone. He said the police did not tell him that he was being charged for assaulting anyone with a gun.

Senior Magistrate Fraser explained that since the crime allegedly occurred with the use of a firearm, she cannot grant him bail. Slusher was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until April 5, 2016.
