Vendor denies assault charge

A fruit vendor facing an assault charge will have to return to court in another two months.

When Leroy Grandison appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court this afternoon, he pleaded not guilty to assaulting Muna Atkins, occasioning her actual bodily harm on March 22, 2016.

Grandison also pleaded not guilty to unlawfully having a knife at the Cheapside Public Market on the same date.

Cuffy-Sargeant released him on $5,000 bail and ordered him to return to court on June 7, after prosecutor Sergeant Neville Reid did not object to bail.
