A well-known Black Rock man accused of injuring a vendor by knocking her down with a garbage can on October 17, 2012, today vehemently denied the charge.
Levinston Anthony Mings was in the dock before District ‘A’ Magistrate Douglas Frederick charged with injuring Martha Doyle.
Mings, who is represented by Hal Gollop, QC, also rejected suggestions by the prosecuting officer that on the day in question he went into his house and returned with a cutlass.
When the prosecutor put it to Mings that he had knocked down the complainant with the can, the accused strongly denied it, but suggested that she might have fallen because she has no toes due to her bad diabetic condition.
Mings, who opted today to make a statement from the witness stand and be subjected to cross examination and re-examination, informed the court he intended to call two witnesses to support his case.
Hearing was adjourned until October 5, 2016.
