[www.inewsguyana.com] – Randy ‘Tupac’ Bowen of Lot 17 Prince William Street, Plaisance, East Coast Demerara, was remanded to prison by Magistrate Ann McLennan for assaulting ex – girlfriend.
The defendant, a water vendor on Plaisance Park pleaded not guilty to the offence, which alleged that on April 12 on Regent and King Street, Georgetown; he unlawfully assaulted Keziah Hinds, causing her actual bodily harm.
Police Prosecutor Dinero Jones said the virtual complainant (VC) and the defendant shared a relationship but no longer live together. He said Hinds is also a vendor on Regent and Hinck Street and on the day in question, the accused and Hinds has an argument.
Jones said the VC told the accused to remove but he refused and pointed his finger in her face. The Court heard that the woman walked away, but Bowen allegedly pulled her and stabbed her twice in her leg with an ice pick.
The Prosecutor successfully objected to bail citing the seriousness of the offence and fact that the defendant gave contradicting home address to the Court.
Bail was refused and the case was put off to May 16.
