Particulars of the first charge read that, on Wednesday July 10, 2019, at Lamaha Street, Georgetown, in the company of others, and armed with a gun, Charles robbed Tessa Pripon of a phone, a gold band, and a gold chain, a total value of $535,000.

It is also alleged that, on Sunday May 26, 2019, at Agricola, East Bank Demerara (EBD), he robbed local motor car racer and squash player, Kristian Jeffrey, of his chain, a leather wallet and 15,000 in cash, totaling $425,000.
Chronicle, in a previous report, had stated that Jeffrey and a friend had attended a concert at the stadium, and, at the conclusion of the show, they called a taxi to take them home. However, owing to the heavy traffic at the time, they decided to walk to meet the car and were attacked by Charles.
