Man confesses to hitting another in his head with rock

COURT TODAY BLOCKMichael Charles O’Brian Johnson will be spending the next month at HMP Dodds, after confessing that he hit another man in his head with a rock on Tuesday.

Johnson, who resides at Farm Tenantry Road, St Philip, pleaded guilty to wounding before Magistrate Wanda Blair.

Sergeant Robert Jones said the complainant, Anderson Babb, and a female were sitting on a bench in the Speightstown Esplanade, St Peter on the day.

Johnson arrived and sat on a nearby bench.  He then took up a rock and threw it towards Babb. It struck him to the right side of his head, which began bleeding profusely. Babb had to seek medical attention as a result.

Johnson was seen in the Esplanade the following day and taken to the police station. He told the court today that Babb was walking around behind him “behaving suspicious”.

Magistrate Wanda Blair told Johnson that he should never have struck Babb since he had not interfered with him. One of Johnson’s previous convictions is for assault.
