A man was on Tuesday jailed when he appeared before Magistrate Fabayo Azore at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts charged for wounding his reputed wife.
Andre Robertson, 40, of Lot 4669 Roxanne Burnham Gardens, admitted that on October 23, 2015 he attacked his reputed wife Denise Fredericks with intent to maim, disable and disfigure her.
Reports are that Fredericks, a newspaper vendor, was returning from a newspaper outlet where she had just bought newspaper to sell for the day when Robertson approached her, whipped out a cutlass and fired chops at her.
The court heard that subsequent to the incident Robertson stabbed himself in the abdomen and cut his throat.
Both parties were rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC).
In court on Tuesday, Magistrate Azore jailed Robertson for 36 months.
