Clyde Watson, 36, aka DJ Raw Gold, a customs broker and part time disc jockey at HJ 94.1 station, today appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McClennon at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts when he denied assault and malicious wounding charges.
The charges state that on 10 April, at Lance Gibbs Street, he unlawfully assaulted Melissa Duke and maliciously wounded Marlon Williams aka Dj Yannick.
He was granted $55,000 bail and placed on a bond until the conclusion of matter. The matter was adjourned until May 3.
Guyana Standard understands that the two independent radio DJs work alongside each other at the radio station.
Police had reported that the incident occurred at about 8:45h at HJ Radio 94.1 on Lance Gibbs Street, Queenstown.
The report states that Watson allegedly broke a Guinness bottle and stabbed Williams several times to his face. Williams reportedly told police that on arrival at the radio station, he made contact with the suspect and they got into an argument over work.
Duke was allegedly pushed to the ground and received several injuries due to the impact of the push and fall.
Williams was taken to Georgetown Public Hospital where he was treated and sent away.
Watson had escaped after the incident.
The management of HJ 94.1 later confirmed the incident and said the independent programme and two DJs have been suspended from its airwaves. The radio station made it clear that the two men are independent deejays, who, like others, purchase air time from the radio studio to air their weekend programmes.
