$ 30,000 bail for man in Police viral altercation video

Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan on Wednesday granted $ 30,000 bail to Clive Fields also known as Anthony Prince for aggravated robbery when he appeared before her at Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.

The charge read that Fields, in the vicinity of Demico House, Stabroek Square, stole a Venezuelan national Ricky Menque robbery from a Samsung cellphone and $ 25,000 cash on Sunday, January 03, 2021.

Police said Menque, a 31-year-old man from Friendship, Demerara East Bank (EBD) had just left a minibus and was walking on the sidewalk when he was pulled over by three identifiable men. Fields later identified positively as one of the robbers.

During Sunday’s arrest, Fields became aggressive and attacked the Ranks who were forced to defend themselves. This led to a physical confrontation between him and the Police resulting in the admission of both parties.

Several eyewitnesses captured the incident on video and uploaded it to social media which has since gone viral.
