Malcolm Collie, the 27-year-old Cooper Street, Albouystown attempted murder accused, was yesterday granted his release on $100,000 bail after the charge against him was withdrawn and a lesser charge of inflicting grievous bodily harm was laid.
The new charge alleges that on May 18th, 2018, at Cooper Street, Albouystown, Collie inflicted grievous bodily harm on Ronald Khan.
Principal Magistrate Judy Latchman granted Collie his release on $100,000 bail.
The previous charge stated that on May 18th, 2018, at Cooper Street, Albouystown, with intent to commit murder, Collie wounded Khan. It was reported at the time that the victim was hospitalised at the Georgetown Public Hospital nursing punctured lungs, three broken ribs and several lacerations.
The charge was withdrawn based on advice from the Chambers of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
