Newtown duo charged with assaulting each other

A supervisor of Survival Supermarket and a stall owner were charged with unlawfully assaulting each other, among other charges when they appeared at the Georgetown’s Magistrate Court yesterday before Magistrate Judy Latchman in Court 3.

Andrew Fernandes, 18, of 157 D’Andrade Street, Newtown, Kitty, who said he was a supervisor at Survival Supermarket pleaded not guilty to threatening behaviour to Derrick Hall on November 10.

Meanwhile, Hall, 24, of 207 Da Silva Street was charged with assault causing actual bodily harm to Fernandes on November 10. He pleaded guilty with explanation.

Police Prosecutor Vishnu Hunte stated that Fernandes was arguing with Hall when Hall pulled out a cutlass and threatened to chop him.

Hall then explained to the court that after he argued with Fernandes he proceeded to go to his father’s home.

“On my way to my dad house, I see he coming cussing to me and I look around and see a 2 x 2 wood and struck he with it,” Hall said. “After dat he come back with he mom and father and dey try holing me down, so dey son could beat me.’’

Magistrate Latchman then changed Hall’s guilty plea to not guilty and placed him on $60,000 bail, while Fernandes was placed on $30,000 bail.

The matter will continue on November 20 at Court 10.
