Patrick Mark Bascombe has been remanded to prison at the ripe age of 61, accused of committing an offence almost a year ago.
It is alleged that Bascombe, of no fixed place of abode, unlawfully and maliciously wounded Jamar Waldron on October 7, 2017.
He has denied the criminal charge levelled against him.
The prosecutor objected to bail for Bascombe on the grounds he was known to the courts – with over 60 convictions, most of them of a similar nature – and the fact that he had no fixed address and due to the seriousness of the offence.
However, the accused charged that he had a Greenfield, St Michael address and had a job which he did not want to lose, and as such would like to be offered bail.
Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant denied his application for bail and gave him an October 9 date to return before the No. 2 District ‘A’ Court.
