A  man was on Friday refused bail after he pleaded not guilty to a charge of unlawful wounding.

Nkosi Gittens, of 36 East Ruimveldt, Georgetown was read a charge which stated that on July 18, at Middle Road, La Penitence, he unlawfully and maliciously inflicted grievous bodily harm on Ronnel Hawke.
