Ryan Anderson Padmore, of Salters, St George who bit and resisted a police officer will know his fate when he returns before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant on March 18.
The 43-year-old man attacked police constable Lewis Howard on February 16 while he was executing his duty in The City.
According to prosecutor police constable Kenmore Phillips, the accused was wanted in connection with the September 29, 2018 theft of 24 bottles of perfume worth $360 belonging No. 1 Beauty Supplies located on St Michael Row.
Police approached and detained him when he was spotted at a bar in the Nelson Street last Saturday.
He was taken to the police vehicle where a struggle ensued on the outside and he bit PC Howard on his hand and biceps. The vehicle window was also damaged during that time resulting in him being charged with wounding, criminal damage and resisting arrest to which he pleaded guilty.
However, he told the magistrate that he wanted to plead guilty in the High Court to a charge of escaping lawful custody with the use of force which allegedly occurred on February 16.
That case was committed before a High Court judge for sentencing.
