A St Michael man has been ordered to keep the peace for the next six months, after pleading guilty to assaulting a doctor.
If Sheik Nezar Ahmad, 39, of 34B Dairy Meadows, Holders Hill, fails to comply with the order handed down by Magistrate Douglas Frederick, he will have to pay the court $2,500 forthwith or spend a month behind bars.
Ahmad admitted to unlawfully entering the premises of Shakilah Patel and assaulting her on October 25.
According to the facts presented by police prosecutor Sergeant Neville Watson, Ahmad and Patel had known each other since 2000, having met at the University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus.
The complainant is a doctor and the sister of a woman with whom Ahmad had previously been involved.
However, the court heard that lately he had tried courting Patel, who resisted his advances.
He went to the complainant’s office at Pickwick Gap, St Michael on one occasion and she asked him to leave and not return.
Yesterday, he went back and when asked by the receptionist to leave, he became hostile.
Patel subsequently came out to the reception area after dealing with a patient and Ahmad lunged at her. Fearing for her safety, she reported the matter to the police.
Ahmad, who is not known to the courts, apologized when asked if he had anything to say in relation to the charges.
“I have no intentions of going anywhere around her,” he added.
