A construction worker who allegedly dealt a 20-year-old man several stabs about his shoulder, arm, and upper back was today charged with attempted murder.
Twenty-five-year-old Trilion Peters of 664 East Ruimveldt, Georgetown appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
The unrepresented man was not required to plead to the indictable charge which stated that on May 25 last, at East Ruimveldt, Georgetown, with the intent to commit murder or cause grievous bodily harm, he wounded Ovid Barrow.
Facts presented by Police Prosecutor Neville Jeffers stated that on the day in question, the defendant confronted the victim in relation to an incident which took place last February. The court heard the two got into an argument and Peters pulled out a knife from the waist of his pants and dealt the victim several stabs about his body.
The injured man fell to the ground in an unconscious state and was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was admitted. The matter was then reported, an investigation was carried out, hence the current charge.
While Prosecutor Jeffers did not object to bail being granted to Peters, he asked that conditions be attached. Hence, the Chief Magistrate released Peters on $100,000 bail. The condition of the bail is that he must stay 50 feet away from Barrow and should not contact or cause anyone to make contact with the victim.
He was also instructed to report to the East Ruimveldt Police Station every Friday until the hearing and determination of the trial.
The matter was adjourned until August 15.
