A 47-year-old man, accused of wounding, has been granted $10,000 bail.
It is alleged that on March 1, Patrick O’Neal Pilgrim, of No. 49 Phillips Road, Pine, St Michael, unlawfully wounded Ryan O’Neal Goodridge with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him or to do some serious bodily harm to him.
According to police, the two men were involved in an altercation around 8:45 a.m. on the aforementioned date which resulted in 33-year-old Goodridge receiving two lacerations to the right side of his head as a result of a cutlass attack.
The victim was taken to the state-run Queen Elizabeth Hospital by private vehicle for medical attention.
Today, Pilgrim, who is being represented by attorney-at-law Arthur Holder, was not required to plead to the indictable charge when he appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court.
And with no objection to his bail, Pilgrim was released after Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant accepted his two sureties.
However, the accused, who returns to court on June 18, has been warned to stay away from Goodridge and his property.
