St Michael duo accused of assaulting woman

Two St Michael residents – a man and a woman – denied an assault charge when they appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court jointly accused of the offence.

It is alleged that Sean Andre Antonio Goddard, 27, and Andrea Arlene Best, 50, both of Murray Road, Clevedale, assaulted Shereena Armstrong on June 10, occasioning her actual bodily harm.

The two were granted bail in the sum of $5,000 each, which they secured.

As part of their bail conditions, they have been warned not to interfere with the complainant.

They are scheduled to make their second appearance before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant on September 7.

Over in the High Court, Terry Avery Toppin of Chapel Land #1, St Philip denied two wounding charges levelled against him.

Appearing before Madam Justice Michelle Weekes in the No. 2 Supreme Court yesterday, he pleaded not guilty to causing serious bodily harm to Dave Harte with intent to cause serious bodily harm or to maim, disfigure or disable him on October 5, 2009.

He also denied unlawfully and maliciously wounding the same man on the same date.

Following his plea, the matter was adjourned to September 26.

Attorney-at-law Angella Mitchell-Gittens is representing the accused man while Crown Counsel Oliver Thomas is the prosecutor.
