A fisherman who allegedly stabbed his drinking buddy to the neck during a game involving knives was today remanded to prison after being slapped with an unlawful wounding charge.

Twenty-five-year-old Kevin Allicock of 32 James Street, Albouystown, denied the change which stated that on April 17, 2019, at Georgetown, he unlawfully wounded Joseph Barker with the intent to maim, disfigure, or cause grievous bodily harm.

According to information, on the day in question, the men were at a shop consuming alcohol and playing a game with knives known as horseplay. The court heard that while playing, Allicock picked up a knife from a table and stabbed his friend to the neck.

The injured man was taken to the hospital where he was treated and sent away.

The matter was then reported, an investigation was carried out, and Allicock was charged.

However, Police Prosecutor Richard Harris told the court that the victim was this morning readmitted to the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC) for his injuries which are listed as potentially life-threatening.

The Prosecutor asked that Allicock be remanded to prison on the grounds of the serious nature of the allegation and the penalty the charge attracts.

Magistrate Daly, after listening to the facts, remanded the father of two to prison. He was instructed to make his next court appearance on July 29.
