The 32-year-old Glen, whose last address was stated as Vriesland Village, West Bank Demerara was one of six men wanted by police.
Acting Chief Magistrate Juliet Holder-Allen had issued an arrest warrant for Glen on June 11. The accusation of attempted murder states that while a fugitive, he had detained and shot Mohan three times before the man escaped.
The other allegation against Glen states that on June 6, he placed a gun to Mangalís head and demanded cash. He reportedly relieved the man of an undisclosed sum before escaping. He will make his next court appearance on June 26, at the Wales Magistrateís Court where his matters have been transferred.
