Man granted bail on assault, damage to property charges


DSC04962Thirty – three – year old Richard Lashley Bobb of Sheriff Street Georgetown appeared before Chief Magistrate Priya Berharry to answer the charge of unlawful assault and damage to property.

Bobb initially pleaded guilty to the offenses, but following his explanation to the Court, the Magistrate entered a not guilty plea.

The court was told that on July 11 at Sheriff Street Georgetown, Bobb unlawfully assaulted Jason Moses, causing him actual bodily harm. In addition, the accused inflicted damage to a motorcycle, property of the Virtual Complainant [VC].

The Police Prosecutor told the Court that on the day in question at about 20:00h, the V.C was riding a motorcycle on Sheriff Street when he was confronted by the accused. The prosecutor said the Virtual Complainant was questioned about his presence in the area by the accused who was at the time riding a bicycle.

According to the Prosecutor, the accused then threw his pedal cycle in the path of the V.C causing him to fall off of the motorcycle and sustain injuries about his body.

However, the accused denied that he ever committed the offence and told the court that the Virtual Complainant was chasing after him with the motorcycle and that he jumped off of the pedal cycle causing the accused to crash into it.

He was placed on $50,000 bail for each offense with his next court appearance set for July 19.[Royan Abrams]
