A man was yesterday remanded to prison after being charged with breaking the feet of another man during a fight over a dog.
Aaron Romascindo, 28, was brought before Magistrate Ann McLennan charged with unlawfully and maliciously inflicting grievous bodily harm on Angelo Poliah. Romascindo was not required to plead to the charge.
According to Prosecutor Deniro Jones, the defendant and Poliah both reside in White Water Village. He said on the date in question, April 13th, Poliah, along with a friend, had been walking past the defendant’s home when a dog ran out at him from Romascindo’s yard. The prosecutor said the defendant soon followed his dog and an argument broke out between him and Poliah. A scuffle shortly followed, during which Romascindo picked up a piece of wood and dealt several blows to Poliah.
According to Prosecutor Jones, the defendant fractured Poliah’s feet, forcing the injured man to undergo surgery at the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPH) yesterday morning. The surgery, Jones said, resulted in the virtual complainant’s absence from court.
As a result, Romascindo was remanded to prison until April 23.
