A 59-year-old man already on remand at her Majesty’s Prison Dodds returned to court today on two assault charges, which were allegedly committed early this year.
He is Ricardo Anderson Rivere of Fairfield Road, Black Rock, St Michael.
When he appeared before acting Magistrate Sandra Rawlins, he pleaded not guilty to assaulting Nicole Cobham-Cornelius on June 23 occasioning her actual bodily harm as well as Reon Cornelius on the same day.
The accused will make his next appearance in the District ‘A’ Magistrate Court on December 14.
Rivere has been on remand at the St Philip institution since last month, accused of setting fire to a building on October 19 that housed several businesses on Bolton Lane, The City, belonging to OMB Limited.
