A Guyanese visitor known only as Mankad has been remanded to HMP Dodds for the next 28 days on an indecent assault charge.
The 47-year-old vendor who lives at an apartment in Pine Road, St Michael arrived in Barbados on August 17 and was scheduled leave next week.
He is accused of committing the offence against a woman on August 24.
The Caribbean Community national was denied bail after prosecutor Sergeant Vernon Waithe informed Acting Magistrate Sandra Rawlins that he was already on bail from the Holetown Magistrates’ Court on a similar offence.
“I have no court story in Barbados,” Mankad said in his application for bail, stating that he had a previous case in which he was reprimanded and discharged by the magistrate.
However, a second check by police showed that he did have a case pending.
Rawlins inform the accused man that the charge before the court was “quite serious” and as such he would spend sometime on remand.
Mankad makes his second appearance on October 6 before the No.2 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court..
