A 55-year-old man, who told a Bridgetown magistrate he had no one to post bail on his behalf, has been remanded to prison for the next 28 days.
Winston McDonald Lewis of Sookram’s Apartments, Suttle Street, St Michael is accused of inflicting serious bodily harm on John Wickham, on September 20, with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him.
Lewis was not required to plead to the indictable offence.
However, the prosecutor, Sergeant Martin Rock, objected to bail based on Lewis’ antecedents, the nature and seriousness of the offence, as well as for the protection of society.
Magistrate Douglas Frederick therefore remanded the accused man to Dodds until October 25.
