Woman hits another with rock in the face
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.
