Woman hits another with rock in the face

COURT TODAY BLOCKOne woman pleaded guilty to unlawfully and maliciously wounding another on September 30.

Lin-Marie Haydene Mayers of Bannister Land, Martindales Road, St Michael admitted to hitting Bianca Walcott twice with a rock on that date.

The District ‘A’ Magistrates’ court heard from Station Sergeant Irvin Kellman that Walcott was walking along River Road when she heard Mayers making remarks behind her.

Walcott ignored Mayers and continued walking. She went on to the premises of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and when she reached the canteen, Mayers and another person approached her.

Mayers then said: “I want you risk something.”

The complainant responded by telling Mayers to leave her alone, and walked away. Mayers then picked up a rock and threw it, hitting Walcott at the side of her face, close to the temple.

The two fought and Mayers was hit with Walcott’s umbrella during the scuffle. Two persons parted the fight and when Walcott stooped to pick up her cellular phone from the ground, Mayers hit her in the left side of the face again with the same rock.

Walcott fell to the ground unconscious.

During an interview later with police, Mayers admitted hitting Walcott with the rock but claimed that Walcott had hit her first.

Today, in court before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant, Mayers said she had “nothing to say”.

A presentencing report was ordered and Mayers returns to court on December 11.

      If this deserves a hurray, you must be beside yourself with joy thanks to all the recent news. Seriously, why would you make light of nonsense like this? There’s nothing funny about violent attacks and this has nothing to do with independence

    I wonder what the victim did to cause this….bear in mind no one just walks up and hits u with a rock at random!! Not saying she deserved it but clearly this was a reaction!

      Divine Duchess, you seem more determined to defend the action than the perpetrator who had nothing to say. Maybe we’ve been making too many excuses for senseless over-reaction.

    Wow. Her statement was, ” risk something ” to the other lady before the fight began… If this is so, she’s risking her freedom or her life getting into altercations … Better learn to walk away yeah. Things aren’t going too good right now around here. Calm those tempers and chose your words carefully. Avoid these fights man.

    Anger management is wasted on this woman, time behind bars will give her time to think how low she has sunk

    What I find interesting is that consideration is given to “clearly she did something to cause this” I do agree that it must have been provoked by something. I wonder if the same consideration would be give to a man/woman confrontation because “clearly they too are reactions” (not accusing – it just sparked my thoughts) Hopefully one day ALL injustices will end. Women can be spiteful and violent creatures some of who have gotten away with it for too long. Time for it to stop.

    As long as the victim did not touch her those ladies had no business to hit her. Bullies

    These are the women bringing children in to their lives and people wonder why the children behave like animals.

    I hope this is taken very seriously, if she were hit in her temple she could have died. It embarrases me as a Bajan that throwing rocks is so commonplace to the point that they are called “Bajan hand grenades”. I sincerely hope this changes. Rocks are everywhere and if someone decides to wield one as a weapon, they should be made example of. I hope some sort of awareness programme comes from this, especially in schools.
