Holder barred from trading outside Popular supermarket

A vendor, who assaulted and pulled knife on a security guard at a local supermarket, must be on his best behaviour for the next six months.

Kensna Cameron Gregory Holder of Mellows Hill, St Joseph must adhere to the bond imposed by Magistrate Douglas Frederick if he wants to avoid spending three months behind bars at HMP Dodds.

The 33-year-old has also been barred from vending outside Popular Discounts at Spooner’s Hill for the next six months.

The sentence was imposed after he appealed for leniency after pleading guilty to assaulting Alistair Stuart on January 15.

Stuart was on duty at the supermarket when he asked Holder, who has behaving in a “boisterous” manner, to leave. He refused, pulled a knife from his pocket and threatened the security guard, saying: “If you come touch me I gone juk you up.”

Police were summoned and Holder, who was found at the scene, admitted to the crime.

He explained to the magistrate that while carried a knife, he did not do so “purposely”.

He further said that he left the store quarreling but “did not approach anybody”.

“I apologize for my action and I asking for leniency,” Holder stated.

However, the magistrate questioned why he was behaving like a “bad man” on the outside but was so “docile” inside the court.

“If you are a bad man out there don’t come and beg and plead in here,” the magistrate said, stressing that in addition to having no reason to behave in that manner, Holder aggravated the situation further by pulling a knife.

“I sincerely asking for your mercy,” Holder pleaded as he issued an apology to his victim, adding that he had not been before the law court for the six years.

    How do you not carry a knife purposely? If you want to pull knives you don’t get to sell. I wonder will he go in Dodds talking sh:)) with a knife. That is why he is asking for mercy because he will not be a bad man in jail.

    Well at least he did not get remand for it, so he has time to clean up his act and keep to himself.
    If he cares to, he can still sell the produce from home.
