REHOBOTH, 11 FEB (NAMPA) – The case against a 23-year-old Groot Aub man arrested for alleged robbery on 19 January at the settlement was withdrawn after the victim said he was refunded the money.
Geovenni Meyes appeared before Magistrate Bernadine Kubesrky on a charge of robbery and was released after the case was withdrawn.
It is alleged that in January, Meyes assaulted and forced Michael Engelbrecht into submission and robbed him of N.dollars 150, but Engelbrech, who was in the presence of his guardian, said he decided to withdraw the case, because he was refunded the full amount and added that he was not coerced to withdraw the case.
Public prosecutor Zibiho Munenze represented the State in this matter.
