Wong pleads guilty to assault

COURT TODAY BLOCKA 54-year-old carpenter has been remanded to HMP Dodds after confessing to beating his wife and threatening to cut her up.

Magistrate Douglas Frederick also ordered a presentencing report on Derek Wong, of #5 Free Hill, Black Rock, St Michael, who returns to court on June 29.

Wong pleaded guilty today to assault and using the words “I gine stab you in you neck” and “I would cut you up and no-one would hear you”.

Acting Station Sergeant Neville Watson told the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court that Wong drinks alcohol excessively and, as a result, has at times been physically and verbally abusive to his wife during their 10-year marriage.

On May 30, Wong beat his wife by cuffing her in the head before making his way to the kitchen where he grabbed a knife and threatened the woman. This was done in the presence of one of their sons, who held on to their mother in an effort to protect her.

When she began screaming, her eldest child came out of his room and he too intervened by asking Wong to stop.

The woman reported the matter to police at a neighbour’s house.

Before remanding him, the Magistrate told Wong that instead of getting better, he seemed to be getting worse.
