Two men accused of assault get bail
A 24-year-old unemployed man was released on $5,000 bail after denying an assault charge.
Andrew Ramon Watson, of 6D Field Road, Wildey, St Michael is accused of unlawfully assaulting Danielle Forde-Riddick on March 26, occasioning her actual bodily harm.
Police prosecutor Station Sergeant Janice Ifill had no objections to bail and Watson was released after Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant accepted his surety.
He makes his second appearance before the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on June 12.
In another case, Station Sergeant Ifill also had no objections to bail but urged Magistrate Cuffy-Sargeant to impose a condition on Ryan Addison Payne if he was granted his freedom.
The 41-year-old taxi driver from Frenches, St George was not required to plead to the indictable charge of indecently assaulting a woman on March 24.
He was granted $8,000 bail by the magistrate, which he secured with one surety.
Payne must, however, report to the Boarded Hall Police Station every Tuesday and Friday by noon, with valid identification.
He is expected to return to court on June 22.
