Couple remanded for stabbing neighbour during argument

A couple were on Thursday arraigned and remanded to prison for stabbing their neighbour during a misunderstanding.
Kenese Bobb, 24, and Kemo Harlequin, 28, of D’Urban Backlands, Georgetown, appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan and were not required to plead to the indictable charge which stated on December 10, 2019, they unlawfully and maliciously wounded Jermaine Sampson with intent to maim, disable, disfigure or cause grievous bodily harm.
Police Prosecutor Gordon Mansfield told the court that on the day in question, Harlequin and the Virtual Complainant had a misunderstanding and Bobb intervened.
It was then the couple went into the man’s home and hurled glass bottles at him.
The court further heard that the man was then dragged down his stairway and into the yard, during which he was stabbed about his body with kitchen knives by the couple.
The injured man was later picked up and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he remains a patient.
The matter was reported and the couple were arrested and charged for the offence.
The Prosecutor objected to bail being granted to the couple on the grounds of the serious nature of the allegation and the fact that the VC was still hospitalised in critical condition.
The couple will return to court on January 2, 2020.
