The 19-year-old was identified as Lloyd Parchue. He along with the 15-year-old appeared before Senior Magistrate, Sharon Frazer in Court #2 where they were jointly charged with the robbery of businesswoman, Yue Di Kuang, 38, owner of Moon Grocery Store, located on Coney Drive.

The duo was unrepresented but the minor's sister was in court to hear the charges read to him.

They were charged with the robbery of Moon Grocery Store in which $2,400 in cash along with two cell phones were stolen from Ye Di Kuang.

Parchue was additionally charged with two counts of attempted murder upon two police officers, as Cpl. Renaldo Bruhier and Police Officer, Emelio Ack, who responded to the robbery report.

In court, both Parchue and the minor pleaded not guilty to the charges of robbery.

No plea taken from Parchue, who was charged alone for two counts of attempted murder upon the officers.

Before leaving the court, Parchue told the Senior Magistrate, Sharon Frazer that he was beaten badly by police. He claimed that the officers also burnd him with hot water and that one of them told him that he will kill him.

The complaint was recorded by the Senior Magistrate in the court book but they were both remanded into custody due to the nature of the offense. The minor was remanded to the Youth Hostel while Parchue was remanded to the Belize Central Prison where they will reappear in Court #2 on December 17, 2012.

In a report to police, Kuang, told police that at 1:40 p.m., on Friday, October 26th, she was inside her establishment along with her daughter, Ying Zhu Li, 22,  when two dark complexioned male persons entered the store. According to Kuang, one of the assailants was armed with a firearm and pointed it at her while the other proceeded to take money from the cash register. Both men then fled the scene.

Police on mobile patrol in the area quickly responded and set chase after three men. Upon reaching the corner of Sun Dial Avenue and University Boulevard, one of the men pointed a 9 mm pistol at the police officers and fired several shots at them.

He missed and was able to escape.

Police say that in a swampy area where the men had run, they found a camouflage bag containing the cash. They also found one 9 mm gun, 9 mm expended shells, and a black in color warm hat.
