Man admits to hitting his brother with a piece of wood
A St Michael man, who caused his brother actual bodily harm, was remanded by Magistrate Douglas Frederick today.
When Rico Kevin Prescod, of 1st Avenue Spring Garden, Black Rock, went before the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court, he pleaded guilty to hitting his sibling with a piece of wood on July 1.
Sergeant Martin Rock told the court of an ongoing dispute between Rico and his brother Neil Prescod. Rico blames Neil for injuries he sustained some time in 2014.
As a consequence, on July 1, when Neil went to take a bath, Rico armed himself with a three-foot piece of wood. As soon as Neil came out of the bathroom, Rico beat him about the body with it.
Neil called the police and sought medical attention.
Questioned today, Rico said he never “beat” his brother with the weapon and recalled hitting him only once.
The complainant is expected to attend court on August 6, when the matter comes up again.
