A 14-year-old Golden Grove lad was yesterday granted his release on $50,000 bail for unlawfully wounding another teenager during an alleged robbery.
The teenager appeared before Magistrate Fabayo Azore in Georgetown and was read a charge which stated that on the 29th March at Croal Street, Georgetown, he unlawfully and maliciously wounded Kenroy Chance, 19, causing actual bodily harm.
The charge was read in camera and the accused denied the allegation that was read to him.
According to the prosecution, on the day in question, the complainant was standing on Croal Street, when he was confronted by the accused who attempted to push his hands into his pocket. As a result a scuffle ensued between the two parties. The accused then became annoyed and armed himself with a broken bottle and dealt the victim eight stabs to his back, after which he made good his escape. He was later apprehended by the police and charged with the said offence.
Magistrate Azore granted the accused his release on $50,000 bail and the matter was adjourned until August 8.
