Guam - After five days of trial and two days of deliberation, a superior court jury found David Villena Quitugua guilty for an April robbery.  Quitugua went into a pawnshop in Hagatna armed with a knife. 

He jumped the counter and demanded money as another employee called 911 as Quitugua fled the scene in a vehicle. 

Police were able to locate the suspect vehicle and Quitugua then tried to elude authorities. "I thank the two victims in this case who came and gave testimony against Mr. Quitugua, as well as the several other members of the general public who testified as to what they witnessed," said Assistant Attorney General James Collins, who prosecuted the case.
