A 29-year-old landscaper was today released on $15 000 bail after appearing in the Oistins Magistrates’ Court on a serious charge.
Tristan Pierre McCollin, of #833 Kingsland Crescent, Christ Church, is charged with trespassing on Keisha Best’s home on October 8, with intent to inflict bodily harm on her. It is alleged that he had a knife at the time.
McCollin was not required to plead to the indictable offence when he appeared before Acting Magistrate Alliston Seale today.
While the police prosecutor objected to bail because the alleged victim was fearful of the accused, McCollin’s attorney Corey Greenidge argued for “reasonable bail” for his client.
Magistrate Seale granted the bail with one surety on the condition that McCollin stays 100 metres away from the complainant, and reports to the Oistins Police Station every Monday and Thursday before 9.a.m.
The accused also had to surrender all his travel documents and was warned not to leave the jurisdiction without the court’s permission.
He returns to court on December 13, 2016.
