“Parro” denies threatening women

Noel Alexander Austin, who described himself to the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court as a “parro” who had no friends and was disliked by his family, was today remanded into custody for allegedly threatening two women.

The 41-year-old who was listed on the charge sheet as having no fixed place of abode is accused of using threatening words towards Kathy Ann Lorde: “That AIDS dog back inside hey. I gonna hit you in you face with a big rock and I gonna take it further. If Chow don’t get rid of you from bout hey, I gonna kill you.”

That incident allegedly occurred on August 12.

Austin is also accused of threatening Cheryl Jordan on February 15. He allegedly told Jordan: “I gine shoot you in you face. Every time I see you I am going to keep slapping you in your face. You lucky that you is my mother and father child or I would have you dead ever since.”

However, Austin denied making either threat, even though he admitted taking up two rocks and placing them back down.

“They are lying, Ma’am,” Austin said. “All dem people telling lies against me.”

“Austin, is everybody telling lies on you?” Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant asked.

“In this case, Ma’am, yes!” was his emphatic reply.

“They have to be hearing voices, they have to be hearing voices  . . . and need to be going to the mental.”

When asked whether he had anyone to post his bail, Austin responded: “Bail? I am a parro, Ma’am. I don’t keep no friends, my family don’t like me, I am alone in this world.”

“This is pure lies, this is pure discrimination,” he declared.

After Austin tried to explain himself further, the magistrate remanded him to HMP Dodds until November 4, which Austin said was an “abomination.”
