‘I felt betrayed’

Accused explains why he sprayed kerosene on his girlfriend and her lover

A 39-year-old man who “sprayed” his girlfriend and her lover with kerosene oil after finding them in his bed has been granted bail.

Royon Royden James of Savannah Road, Bush Hall, St Michael pleaded guilty before Magistrate Douglas Frederick Tuesday morning to assaulting Stephen Dorson on July 3, occasioning him actual bodily harm.

James apparently arrived home around 10:15 p.m. on Monday night to discover a pair of slippers that were not his at his front door.

Suspecting that his girlfriend had someone in the bedroom, James went to the back of the house and took up a bottle of kerosene oil, the court heard.

He subsequently re-entered the house and went into the room were he caught the woman and the complainant in an intimate act.

It was then, according to the police prosecutor Sergeant Martin Rock, that James sprayed both of them with the flammable substance. In fright, the woman ran outside, with James in close pursuit, giving the complainant enough time to put on his clothes and make his escape.

Police were called in and James was arrested and charged.

The complainant was later examined by a doctor and complained of chemical irritation to his right eye.

Appearing in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court Tuesday, James, who is not known to the law courts, told the magistrate he was not a violent person but that he had felt “betrayed”.

He was also adamant that he never intended to do any harm to either the woman or the man, but said he reacted “out of shock”.

However, Frederick told James that while there might have been some level of provocation, he could not take matters into his own hands.

The magistrate also said that he needed to see the complainant to get a sense of the extent of his injuries and as such adjourned the matter until July 12.

    She was wrong but don’t harm her just burn up her clothes and put she out and you could beat the man. But don’t kill or set people on fire for cheating. Interfering with your kid…well that’s another thing but not for this

    Although you can’t condone assault, in this case I can understand and sympathize with him. What she did was just plain wrong.

    Prodigy, maybe he would have to beat men every week, so he would be tired and decide that one beating would do.
