‘The child looks like me’, claims Spooner

courtA 23-year-old St Michael man was today remanded to HMP Dodds after pleading guilty to a wounding charge.

Michael Eugene Kareem Spooner of Quarry Road, Eden Lodge appeared in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court accused of unlawfully and maliciously wounding Eman Khan.

According to the facts, the incident occurred on February 13 at Chefette, Black Rock, St Michael.

The prosecutor revealed that Khan joined his girlfriend and one-year-old daughter at the fast food restaurant after praying at a St Michael Mosque.

While the virtual complainant was having a conversation with the girlfriend on the outside, Spooner approached and started cuffing Khan in the face with his right fist.

After falling to the ground unconscious, Khan was taken to the FMH clinic where he was treated for several injuries to the face, including a puncture wound to the left cheek and swelling.

Khan was then referred to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital where he was told that his left jaw was fractured.

Asked by Magistrate Douglas Frederick whether he wanted to say anything, Spooner said: “I am very sorry about that. Sir, he [Khan] got my number telling me that he going to kill me Sir.”

Frederick asked why and questioned whether the two men had the same girlfriend. Spooner’s reply was yes. He further explained that “the mother [girlfriend] did not know who the child belonged to . .  . but, to me, the child looks like me.”

Frederick explained that a simple DNA test would solve the problem, adding, “this here is a serious thing.

“I gave you compensation the last time and you hardly out of that one and you in another again. I want to see the Indian man,” the magistrate said.

Spooner was then remanded until July 25.

    Until someone in Barbados starts selling inexpensive DNA testing this will continue. It’s simple to say get a DNA test – a DNA test cost $1500 in 2006. I don’t know how much it cost today.

    Do you understand that this accused walked up to a man & beat him in his head until the man fell unconscious?
    And you are saying that this is not a remand incident but only a bond to keep the peace because it is 2 rival lovers fighting? Wow!!!

    Order the DNA. Who knows, it might not belong to any of them.

    “Sir, he [Khan] got my number telling me that he going to kill me Sir.” He threatened you, that does not give you the right to hit the man. Some people bark is srtonger than their bite or a person that got bare talk and won’t hurt a fly. Gone are the days of Bajans sense of reasoning “talk all you want, say what you like as long as you don’t touch me.” The young man left common sense at the bus stop all he had to do is report Khan to the police. Instead he let idiot head take over he could of killed Khan and spend the rest of his life behind bars. If there is a dispute regarding who is the father of the child get a DNA test.

    After such violent behavior to claim paternity, I hope if the child proves to be his that he unfailingly gives the child fatherly love and financial support!

    You don’t often hear of black men fiighting to claim ownership of a child, in fact, it is often the opposite, but perhaps I am wrong, and this young man wish to do the right thing.

    You don’t often hear of black males fighting to claim ownership of a child, in fact, it is often the opposite, but perhaps, I am wrong, and this young man wishes to do the right thing. Now I only hope that I am not being stereotypical here because generally speaking, this has been my experience and I hope that I am wrong on this one.

  15. jrsmith June 28, 2016 at 2:37 pm

    Barbados needs a paternity court with a cheap (DNA) testing centre partly financed by the tax payers. The men need to pay for they nasty behaviour. there is a lot of married men hiding children secrets from they wives…

    Harry I agree with you something have to be wrong with our system. When you can place a $10000 bail on a second time rape predator of young girls but lock up a man for fighting. Is it we just blinded by money or we still living in the pass. It sad really sad

  26. Roger Gibbons July 3, 2016 at 2:24 am
