A retiree will return to court today to hand in his passport after pleading guilty to assault.
Thelma Lee Warren Jr., 69, of 21A Apartment 6, Joyce Mason Avenue, Jackson, St Michael, appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant, charged with assaulting Stencha Augustin of No. 78, Crystal Heights, St James on February 2, 2019.
According to Prosecutor, S/Sgt. Cameron Gibbons, the two were in a relationship for two years and she usually visited his home.
On the day of the incident, Augustin, who also smoked marijuana and used cocaine, visited Warren’s home and he accused her of stealing US$700 from him.
The prosecutor said that as a result, the two were involved in a dispute and Warren struck her in the face and placed a rope around her neck and beat her about the body. Eventually Augustin freed herself and reported the matter to the police.
The medical record was unavailable and the magistrate adjourned the hearing until February 13, 2019.
