A mason, who allegedly dealt a man several stabs about his body during an argument, was today charged with attempted murder.

Quincy Evans, 24 of Gordon Street, Kitty appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.

He was not required to plead to the indictable charge which stated that on August 25, 2019, at Gordon Street, Kitty, he wounded Joshua Williams with intent to commit murder.

Facts presented by Police Prosecutor Gordon Mansfield stated that on the day in question, the victim was standing on Gordon Street, Kitty, when Evans approached him with a sharp instrument.

The court heard the two got into an argument and Evans dealt the victim several chops about his body.

The injured man was then rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) where he was admitted.

The matter was then reported, an investigation was carried out, and Evans was charged with the offence.

While the prosecutor did not object to bail being granted to the defendant, he asked that conditions be attached.

The magistrate, after listening to the facts, released Evans on $120,000 bail.

The conditions of the bail are that he lodge his passport with the court and to not make contact with or cause anyone to make contact with the victim.

He was also instructed to report to the Kitty Police Station every Friday until the hearing and determination of the trial.

Evans is expected to make his next court appearance on September 30.
