Teen girls on assault charges remanded

COURT TODAY BLOCKThree school girls who were involved in a recent fracas in a City bus terminal appeared in chambers yesterday before a Bridgetown magistrate on charges related to the incident.

Two of the accused are 14 years old while the other is 13. A video circulated on social media showed them fighting with a girl from another secondary school.

Barbados TODAY understands that two of the juveniles were remanded to the Government Industrial School while the other was granted bail. They appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant.

The three are all charged with assaulting a schoolgirl, causing her actual bodily harm. One is also charged separately with stealing a hand sanitizer and a pair of epaulettes, while another faces a charge of assaulting a schoolgirl.

The teens will all appear at the Juvenile Court on Wednesday.

      It was outside of school. After school hours. The police and parents are responsible for sorting that mess out. They want some good, back breaking community service, tho. Not Dodds

    No! This is no-frills, swift, justified action. This is what the community expects and needs. Not for them to go back and be viewed as heroes. That was a vicious, merciless attack on another child.

    Your words: school children fight. I can easily see the progression to “robbers rob, killers kill…” No excuses. We’re not accepting it.

    I hope this is a learning lesson for the others out there. The youth of today need some serious training. A lot of them just think the world owes them something, but it does not.. I just hope and pray for deliverance from this kind of life that they are portraying. Lord help us all.

    You people amaze me. What was the reason for the remand to custody? Does vulnerability and risk factors not apply to the judical juvenile courts or is it a bunch of bajans and the media that dictates policy. The day wanna get drag to a higher level of court as i cant understand the way the remand system is being used.

    I am in no way rationalizing or making attempts to for their behaviour but to remand them over what grounds I am asking. It is ABH Actual Bodily Harm not GBH Grevious Bodily Harm and I still cant undertsand why they were remanded. May even be dropped to common assault. Are they flight risks? Her injuries was so severe? The issue of witness intimidation what? You are influenced by public opinion and social media.

    well well well….this culture bandit Sharon Wolley, every day i wintess you in here want people get lock up for weed, want people do this and people do that not you instigating a year in a detention centre without knowing the facts so you judge and jury now. I will come back to you and I, me, will personally will strip some skin off of you intellectually.

    You take time culture bandit. you take time….
