Rico Kevin Prescod was remanded to HMP Dodds after he denied unlawfully assaulting Barbara Prescod and intentionally damaging her car on November 7 this year.
Prescod, 24, resides at 1st Avenue Spring Garden, St Michael.
The police prosecutor, Sergeant Neville Reid, objected to bail for the unemployed man. He submitted that Prescod’s antecedents showed a propensity for committing both types of offences, some of which were recent.
The prosecutor said that he feared the likelihood of Prescod reoffending if he were to be released on bail. Explaining that the complainant and the accused live in close proximity, Reid said he felt “there needs to be a cooling-off period”.
Further, the prosecutor said there has been a “long bad history” between the two.
“I have a son that is less than a month old. I don’t want to miss my first Christmas with him,” the accused said in response.
The accused informed the court that he turned himself in to police, before urging the court to “just give me one chance so I can move and go somewhere else”.
However, the Magistrate denied Prescod’s application for bail “based on the alleged feuding between yourself and the complainant.”
Prescod will come back to court on January 6.
