Man charged with allowing dogs in public without a leash

A 45-year-old St Michael man, charged with two offences, was granted $1,500 bail when he appeared before the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court earlier today.

Christopher Maurice Straker, of No.18 Brighton Crescent, Black Rock, pleaded not guilty, before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant, to two counts of allowing dogs in public without a lead or leash.

The offences allegedly stem from the January 19 incident in which 81-year-old Enid Small, a Barbadian residing in Canada, was attacked and injured by two dogs while walking along Brighton Road, St Michael.

The case against Straker continues on May 17.

      @Helen i guess he isn’t a young black man, caught with a spliff so no, we won’t see a picture. After all his dogs only nearly mauled an old woman to death, nothing to see here.
