Two accused of serious offences

Two people, one of them a teenager, are out on $15,000 bail each, after appearing in a Bridgetown court Friday.

It is alleged that on May 28, 17-year-old Kaneil Akeil Walcott, being together with other persons, used unlawful violence and their conduct taken together was such as would cause a person of reasonable firmness present at the scene to fear for their personal safety.

The unemployed resident of Cave Hill Main Road, St Michael was not required to plead to that indictable charge, but he pleaded not guilty to unlawfully and maliciously wounding Errol Forde.

As a condition of his bail, Walcott must report to Central Police Station every Monday and Thursday before noon, with valid identification. He also has to adhere to a daily 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew.

“Do not come to apply for a waiver of the curfew to attend any party or cruise or even Kadooment,” Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant warned the teen, who was represented by attorney-at-law Brian Clarke.

Clarke also represented Rashida Jeffery Williams of Clarkes Road, Bush Hall, St Michael, who was accused of unlawfully wounding Carl Murrell on June 11 with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him or to cause some serious bodily harm to him.

The 35-year-old vendor was not required to plead to the indictable charge when he went before Magistrate Cuffy-Sargeant. However, he denied unlawfully assaulting Norbert Victor and Felicia Cynthia Felix on the same date.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Cameron Gibbons had no objections to bail for Williams either, but urged the magistrate to attach conditions to his release.

The accused was warned to stay away from his alleged victims and their property and had the same reporting conditions as Walcott.

Williams and Walcott are scheduled to make their second appearances before the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on September 12.
