Angry businessman takes matters into his own hands

A 60-year-old small businessman has been granted $1,000 bail after pleading guilty to assault.

Junior Norman Wood appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant in the No 2 District ‘A’ Criminal Court Tuesday morning charged with assaulting Junior Weekes on the June 24, 2017.

In explaining the facts of the case, Sergeant Cameron Gibbons said the complainant owed the accused money and on the date in question Wood went Weekes’ residence armed with a cutlass.

This led to an altercation between the two men.

However, while pleading guilty to assault, Wood maintained that he never touched the complainant and that the “offence was out of character”, but he said he was tired of “getting the run around from Weekes”.

Both men have ordered to return to court on Thursday in a bid to settle their financial dispute.

    Sometimes it better to say no to some of these ungrateful people. They come to you crying bad just to borrowed your money. As soon as they leave your place different story. I been through that before. Lending people money is a bad word. It Better you gave it to them. Depends on how much it is. It will be less stress and time wasted trying to get it back.

    In this time it don’t pay to be nice. Most people refuse to pay back a friend money but find it necessary to go gamble, buy rum , dope , and pick- fares.

      it is true, I have had that experience. it took about 2 years to collect the money. the easiest way to loose a friend is to lend him money.

    At 60 years he should know that taking up a cutlass and going after some one will land you in trouble.
    The magistrates need to start giving these people seven days in prison, instead of slaps on the risk. If the magistrates want to be effective in their job seven days is prison is a very good tool. Stupid people will wake up fast. Try it!!

    So where does it say that money was borrowed?
    How about payment for work performed?
    Always jumping to conclusions without facts.

    sometimes you lend family members thousands of dollars, and they dont want to remember the promise they made, apart from that, when you ask the family member for your money back, they come up with arguments and conversations and accusations, that dont even have nothing to do with your dam money. They should remember when they came crying and pleading for your hard earn money, but now time to remember how they promise to pay back, its you the lender is the bad person. Then you feel bad for them, and they hope you forget and disregard the money you lend them. yet on church day, you see them praising and teaching people about god, but they dont read how the bible say to pay back who you owe to enter god’s kingdom. True story.
