Murder suspect beaten by vigilantes is charged

NASSAU- The suspect in the stabbing murder of Robinson Paul on November 5 was beaten by vigilantes prior to his arrest.

Police had to lift a bandaged Tavaras Colebrook up the stairs to the South Street Magistrate’s Court Complex.

Prosecutors say the 19-year-old resident of Kool Acres stabbed Paul, 20, in the Haitian community off Joe Farrington Road. Paul died a short time later in hospital.

Colebrook was not required to enter a plea to the murder charge when he appeared before Magistrate Samuel McKinney.

Prosecutors intend to fast-track the case to the Supreme Court by a voluntary bill of indictment on February 12, 2021.

Colebrook has been denied bail; however, he can seek bail in the Supreme Court.
