20-year-old to appear in court; charged with home invasion

Abraham Callender, 20, of Main Street, Beetham Gardens, is scheduled to appear virtually at the Port of Spain Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday 13th July, 2021 after being charged for the following offences:
• Two counts of assault with intent to cause actual bodily harm;

The charges were laid in connection to a report of a home invasion that allegedly took place at the corner of Rigault Street and Old St Joseph Road, Laventille, on Tuesday 6th July, 2021. Callender was arrested later that day and subsequently charged after being positively identified by the victim.
