One month after a couple was charged and remanded for allegedly dragging their neighbour from his apartment before stabbing him with kitchen knives, they were today granted $150,000 bail each.

This is after they made their second court appearance before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts. They were instructed to make their next court appearance on January 27,2020.

Kenese Bobb, 24 and Kemo Harlequin, 28, both of 15 Durban Backlands, Georgetown, were not required to plead to the indictable charge which stated that both of them on December 10,2019, at Durban Backlands, Georgetown, unlawfully and maliciously wounded Jermaine Sampson with intent to maim, disable, disfigure or cause grievous bodily harm.

Facts presented by Police Prosecutor, Gordon Mansfield told the court that all three persons are known to each other since they live in the same compound.

On the day in question, Harlequin and the victim had a misunderstanding and Bobb intervened.
The court heard that the couple went into the victim’s home and hurled glass bottles at him. They then dragged him down the steps and into the yard before stabbing him about his body with kitchen knives.

The injured man was then picked up and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) where he remains a patient.

The matter was then reported and the couple was arrested and charged for the offence.
