A mason was on Monday placed on $50,000 bail by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan when he appeared before her charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm.
Fifty-three year old Ravlon Pollard of 707 East Ruimveldt denied the allegation which read that on January 22 at East La Penitence, he inflicted injuries on the Virtual Complainant (VC), Imran Khan causing him grievous bodily harm.
The Prosecutor made no objections to bail, telling the Court that the two men are known to each other. He related that on the day in question, the accused approached the VC telling him that he has a job for him at his worksite. The VC went along with him and while he was working, the accused walked up to him and dealt him several lashes about his body.
The Magistrate then placed the accused on $50,000 bail and a bond of good behaviour. She ordered him to stay 25 feet away from the VC after hearing that they live a short distance away from each other, and adjourned the matter until February 18.
