NORCO, CA — A judge Monday denied a home detention request from a man who allegedly tried to rob a Norco liquor store with three cohorts but was blasted by the owner with a shotgun.
Rasheed DaShawn Lee Belvin, 23, of Los Angeles was wounded in the left arm last month during the alleged attempted holdup at Norco Market & Liquor at 816 Sixth St.
Belvin pleaded not guilty last week to attempted robbery, conspiracy, elder abuse, firearm assault, possession of a loaded stolen firearm, possession of an assault weapon, two counts of receiving stolen property and sentence-enhancing allegations of using a gun during a felony and victimizing a person over 65 years old.
During a bail review hearing Monday at the Riverside Hall of Justice, Belvin’s attorney submitted a motion requesting that the court consider placing the defendant on home detention with a GPS ankle monitor attached in lieu of remaining locked up in jail.
After hearing objections from prosecutors, Riverside County Superior Court Judge Sean Crandell denied the request and ordered that Belvin be held without bail at the Smith Correctional Facility in Banning. His bail was previously set at $500,000.
Belvin’s co-defendants — Davon Anthony Broadus, 24, of Inglewood, Justin Kyle Johnson, 22, of Inglewood, and Jamar Elijah Williams, 26, of Las Vegas — were arraigned earlier this month on charges of attempted robbery, elder abuse, possession of a stolen firearm, as well as sentence-enhancing allegations of using a gun during a felony and victimizing a person over 65 years old.
Each of the three are being held on $500,000 bail — Broadus at the Smith Correctional Facility in Banning, Johnson at the Robert Presley Jail in Riverside and Williams at the Byrd Detention Center in Murrieta.
All of the defendants, including Belvin, are slated to appear together for a felony settlement conference on Oct. 7.
