Five people – including four women – have pleaded not guilty to causing a disturbance and have each been granted bail in the amount of $8,000.
This follows an altercation between two families on Phillips Road, St Stephens Hill on Sunday.
Two Phillips Road residents – Kathy-Anne Browne, a 26-year-old hairdresser and 24-year-old Lisa Payne, who is unemployed – appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court along with 16-year-old Kaila Gaskin of Clevedale Road, Black Rock; 36-year-old Marsha Gaskin, a gas attendant, who resides at Stanmore Crescent, St Michael and Lennox Maynard, a 46-year-old mechanic, of 2nd Avenue Vauxhall, Christ Church.

Meantime, Maynard, Browne, Payne and Kaila Gaskin, pleaded not guilty before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant to unlawfully and maliciously wounding Jasmine Neptune on May 22.
Kaila Gaskin also denied a charge of assaulting Shaniah Neptune.
The five accused, who were all unrepresented, return to court on August 9.
