A man arrested by San Pedro police has been released without being charged after the victim went to the San Pedro Magistrate’s Court yesterday and told the magistrate that he did not want any court action against the accused.
The court then ordered his release and the man walked out of court.
A couple living in San Pedro reported to police that they were in their house at about 9:30 Saturday evening, July 27, when someone knocked on their door. The man said he opened the door and saw two men outside his house, one of whom pointed a gun at him, while the other man asked him if he “had his money.”
The assailant told the husband that he wanted his $700, and that if he did not get it, he (the husband) would be killed in three days, said police.
The assailants then left the yard.
The husband said that they became fearful and went to the police, who investigated the matter and detained one of the men on Monday.
On Tuesday the detainee was taken to court, but the husband went to court and requested that no action be taken against him.
