A 60-year-old small businessman has been granted $1,000 bail after pleading guilty to assault.
Junior Norman Wood appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant in the No 2 District ‘A’ Criminal Court Tuesday morning charged with assaulting Junior Weekes on the June 24, 2017.
In explaining the facts of the case, Sergeant Cameron Gibbons said the complainant owed the accused money and on the date in question Wood went Weekes’ residence armed with a cutlass.
This led to an altercation between the two men.
However, while pleading guilty to assault, Wood maintained that he never touched the complainant and that the “offence was out of character”, but he said he was tired of “getting the run around from Weekes”.
Both men have ordered to return to court on Thursday in a bid to settle their financial dispute.
