It was alleged that Pindar, called ‘Poison,’ on October 21, 2013, at Leopold Street, stabbed Carlsdale Aaron, during a row over the man’s lost cellphone. According to Police Prosecutor, Neville Jeffers, Pindar used a knife to stab the man several times about his body and then ran away. Aaron was subsequently hospitalised and underwent emergency surgery. Aaron, the court heard, lost a kidney as a result of the stabbing.

At the conclusion of the preliminary inquiry, which saw approximately seven witness testify, Magistrate Ann McLennan found that there was sufficient evidence for Pindar to face a trial.
