Youth in court over lover’s dispute

An apparent lover’s dispute on Kadooment Day landed a 21-year-old man before a Bridgetown Court today on an assault charge.

Keith Sylvester Walcott’s troubles began when he tried to speak with Kaitlyn Morris along the Black Rock, Spring Garden Highway and she refused. The No. 84 Eden Lodge, St Michael resident made a second attempt when he saw Morris later that night around 10 p.m.

A second refusal apparently did not sit well with Walcott who, according to prosecutor Station Sergeant Glenda Carter-Nicholls, cuffed Morris in her head, resulting in a scuffle.

They fell to the ground and it was at that time that Walcott choked Morris. He eventually let her go and left the area.

Walcott was subsequently charged with assaulting Morris, occasioning her actual bodily harm.

His attorney told the Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant that his client and Morris were involved in an intimate relationship and that “young love [doesn’t] always think straight”.

After some dialogue, it was agreed that Morris would be summoned to the No. 2 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on August 17.

Walcott is out on $2,000 bail in the meantime.

    Quite a few many when they get frustrated lash out in threatening ways, some may need some assistance on how to deal with not getting their own way, its part and parcel of life or other ways of channelling negative energy.

    Quite a few guys act in this way, when frustrated they lash out in threatening ways, they may need some assistance on how to deal with not getting their own way, its part and parcel of life…..or to look at other ways of channelling negative energy.

    Did you all read the attorney’s response?

    I wonder if it were his daughter if the feeling would have been the same.

    Young love doesn’t think straight?

    Really attorney?

    …so the cuff to this woman’s head was supposed to make her talk to you? What an idiot. If she doesn’t want you anymore, keep walking. Blows don’t make someone love you. Why go to jail for something that you can avoid? When you are serving time. she’ll be out with someone else, so is it worth it? Twenty years with hard labour. Steupse!!

    Let me get this straight… a man committed assault by hitting a woman to the head and choking her and you people report it as a “lover’s dispute”?!

    What kind of journalists do you employ that misogyny is acceptable?

    This is domestic violence. Report it as such.

    No wonder Barbados won’t progress.
