Alleged spitter charged with assault
An incident that allegedly occurred here on December 10, 2014 initially failed to receive any traction but that could change. At the centre of the allegations was a dispute between a local vendor at Reduit Beach and a restaurant owner operating in the area. The vendor alleges he spat at her.
Last month the restaurateur broke his silence via a STAR advertisement. He gave his own side of the incident and denied he had assaulted the vendor. On the contrary, he noted, it was she who had spat at him. On Wednesday he was charged by police with verbally and physically abusing the beach vendor.
