[www.inewsguyana.com] – A 28 – year-old businessman of White Water Village, North West District charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm was remanded to prison by Magistrate Ann McLennan.
Aaron Ramascindo pleaded not guilty to the charge, which alleged that on Sunday, April 13 at White Water Village, he inflicted grievous bodily harm to Angelo Poliah.
Police Prosecutor Dinero Jones said both men live in the same village and on the day in question, the Virtual Complainant (VC) was passing by the defendant’s home with another person, when Ramascindo’s dog ran out from his yard barking at Poliah.
The defendant came out from his yard and an argument developed which led to a scuffle. It is alleged that the defendant then then picked up a piece of wood and hit Poliah several times to his foot, which resulted in a fracture.
The Prosecutor successfully objected to the pretrial liberty of the defendant citing the seriousness of the offence and the case will call again before Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry for April 23.
