Wounding accused denied bail

A man was on Friday remanded to prison after he was accused of wounding another individual.

Denzel Wilson stood in the Georgetown courtroom of Magistrate Leron Daly, who read a charge which stated that on August 13, at Brickdam, he unlawfully and maliciously wounded Seon Brewster, with the intent to maim, disfigure, disable, or cause grievous bodily harm.

Wilson, who had an open head wound, denied the charge.

The prosecutor later objected to bail being granted, while citing the seriousness of the offence and the fact that the complainant was hospitalised.

However, when granted the opportunity to address the court, Wilson said that he too suffered injuries to his head. He also alleged that Brewster had been released from the hospital on Thursday and was at home.

Magistrate Daly nevertheless remanded the accused to prison until August 25, when the matter will be called again.
