Two teenagers, whose friendship came to an end over a girl, have been placed on a daily curfew.
Sixteen-year-olds Terron Antonio Bridgeman, of Ashdeane Village, Black Rock, St Michael, and Mathew Joshua Orlando George, of Melvin’s, St Michael, pleaded guilty to causing a disturbance in Ashdeane Village on December 23.
According to the prosecutor the two were friends up until four months ago.
On the aforementioned day Bridgeman saw George walking along the road and approached him. They traded words, before their dispute turned physical. Bridgeman then armed himself with a metal pipe and tried to hit George but a bystander intervened and was hurt in the process. The commotion caused several people to gather and the two were parted.
Police were summoned and the boys revealed that they were fighting over a girl who had apparently chosen one over the other.
Today the teens assured Magistrate Douglas Frederick that they would stay away from each other.
He then placed them both on a six-month bond to keep the peace and be on good behaviour. If found in breach they will each be required to pay a $1,500 forthwith fine or spend three months in prison.
They must also adhere to a daily 7p.m. to 7a.m. curfew for the next six months.
