Suspect in entertainer’s robbery, attempted murder denied bail

NASSAU-A magistrate on Wednesday, February 12 denied bail for a man who police say almost killed entertainer Demetrius Smith during an armed robbery.
Rasheed Watson, 20, of Dignity Gardens, faced charges of attempted murder, armed robbery and receiving at his initial court appearance before Magistrate Samuel McKinney.
Prosecutors say that Watson stabbed Smith multiple times during an armed robbery at his San Souci home on February 10.
Watson allegedly took Smith’s $70,000 Chevrolet Tahoe that had $2,500 inside.
Watson was not required to enter pleas to the charges when he appeared before the magistrate.
He will plead to the charges once the matter is committed to the Supreme Court for trial.
That is expected to happen when he returns to court on March 31.
Watson was arrested with another man in a police chase shortly after the incident; however, the second suspect was not charged.
