An employee of a clothing store appeared at the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court on Monday charged with unlawfully wounding her colleague.
Elizabeth Abraham, 31, pleaded not guilty to the offence when it was read to her by Magistrate Annette Singh.
It is alleged that Abraham of James Street, Albouystown, Georgetown, on June 26 unlawfully and maliciously wounded Selena Pooranlall with intent to cause actual bodily harm.
According to the defendant’s Attorney Paul Fung-a-Fat, Pooranlall and his client work at the same place.
He alleged that on the day in question, Pooranlall first attacked the defendant who was at the time holding a scissors.
He said that the scissors accidently cut Pooranlall on her belly area. The wound she sustained is 4cm deep.
He made a successful application for bail on the grounds that the defendant has three children and is currently caring for her husband, who has a broken leg.
Bail was granted at $25,000, with the case set to continue on 25 July.
