Twenty-three year old Michael Arnold, a laborer of Pickstock Street apartments who was recently released from prison, went back to jail today after he appeared before Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser and was arraigned on charges of robbery and wounding. Arnold was denied bail and he was remanded into custody until March 9. His incarceration comes after an incident just after three o’clock on Tuesday afternoon. 56-year-old, Maria Pou of Pou’s Meatpies on New Road had just received five hundred dollars from a tenant and was standing in front of a house on New Road when her assailant came from behind and grabbed the hand in which she held the money. A brief struggle ensued and Mrs. Pou fell to the ground and cut her forehead. Her assailant then made off with the money.
