Festival City man granted bail for allegedly wounding security guards


An Office Assistant who reportedly dealt lashes with a broken bottle to two security guards attached to the 704 night club was earlier today (Monday) charged for the offence when he appeared before City Magistrate Judy Latchman.

Twenty seven year old, Leon Duncan of 1977 Williams Street, Festival City, denied the charge which alleged that, he, on February 23 2018 at Lamaha Street wounded Gremie Adams and kenrick Maynard.

According to his Attorney, Mark Waldron, his client was a victim of mistaken identity. He explained that there was an altercation with the security guards and others when they (security guards) were struck.

He noted that Duncan was wrongfully identified and is not the person who was involved in the incident.

However, Police Prosecutor Arvin Moore revealed facts which stated that the accused reportedly carried out the act.

As such he objected to bail being granted based on the seriousness of the offence and the penalty attached.

Bail was granted in the sum of $80,000 each for both offences and Duncan is expected to return to Court on March 26 2018.
