Knife wielder’s court date set

The Star (Jamaica) - - NEWS -

Amen­tion date of Novem­ber 28 was set in the Cor­po­rate Area Res­i­dent Mag­is­trate’s Court on Wed­nes­day in a mat­ter in which a woman al­legedly used a knife to in­flict an in­jury to the arm of the com­plainant.

Charged with un­law­ful wound­ing is Latoya James, who was fin­ger­printed.

The court heard that on the day of the in­ci­dent, the com­plainant had been ar­gu­ing with two per­sons in a house. Dur­ing the ar­gu­ment, the com­plainant con­fronted James’ who had been work­ing some­where in the house. She then told the com­plainant to re­move her hand from her face and dur­ing the tus­sle; the com­plainant was in­jured on her arm.

The court also heard that the com­plainant showed up at the house of the ac­cused with the po­lice and James was later charged.

Seven stitches were re­quired to close the wound. Both par­ties will re­turn to court later this month.
