A man charged with attempted murder in connection with a machete attack in Mangilao last week was back in court, this time for a violation filed against him in a separate criminal case.
Emmanuel Reselap was in Judge Arthur Barcinas' courtroom Thursday so the court could hear about his third violation in a 2017 armed carjacking and robbery case.
Court records state the third violation was filed after Reselap failed to report to probation for nearly two months while on pretrial release.
On Sept. 30, 2017, Reselap was arrested on suspicion of threatening multiple people at gunpoint in Dededo. He also was accused of stealing a victim's car and assaulting other victims he came across, court documents state.
Reselap told police that he was the "mastermind" behind the plan to steal a car, so that he and two other minors could get the drug Spice. He also blamed his actions on having had too much to drink, documents state.
Since this case, Reselap had been arrested twice on charges of criminal mischief, disorderly conduct and harassment.
He also was wanted by authorities for his third violation, which the court had on his record prior to his latest arrest.
A fourth violation has been added to his record for the 2017 case, after he was charged in connection with the recent incident in Mangilao.
The court agreed, during Thursday's hearing in the Superior Court of Guam, to delay action on the violation. Reselap is scheduled to return to court on July 18.
