Albouystown man jailed for slapping partner

An Albouystown man will spend two weeks in jail after he admitted to slapping his partner twice while he was under the influence of alcohol.

“I was kind of upset with her,” Mahendra Brijnauth told Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court 1, where he admitted to slapping Christine Garraway twice to the face, on March 2, at their James Street, Albouystown home.

It was the police’s case that Garraway was in the upper flat of the house, while Brijnauth was downstairs drinking alcohol.
