Constabulary lance corporal charged with assault

A Lance Corporal in the City Constabulary appeared in court yesterday where she pleaded not guilty to a charge of assault.

Denise Rowland, 51, of Lot 92 Section ‘C’ Block ‘Y’, Grove, East Bank Demerara, was accused of unlawfully assaulting Royda Hatton on April 21, at Bourda.

Prosecutor Deniro Jones did not object to bail being granted to Rowland and her commanding officer, ASP Garnett, who also attended the hearing, requested that the woman be sent on her own recognizance.

Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan adjourned the matter to January 15, when it will be heard in court 11, and Rowland was placed on self-bail.
