A 26-year-old mechanic, who the court heard maliciously wounded his co-worker during an argument over money, was on Friday arraigned for the offence when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
The defendant, Sean Bobb, called “Banks” appeared before Senior Magistrate Leron Daly and admitted to the allegation which stated that on September 9, 2019, at High Street, Werk-en-Rust, Georgetown, he unlawfully and maliciously wounded Anthony Allen.
Police Prosecutor Christopher Morris, who presented short facts to the court, explained that both the defendant and Virtual Complainant are known to each other.
The court heard that on the day of the incident, the duo was fixing a minibus and upon completion of the job, the VC refused to pay Bobb for the work done.
This annoyed the defendant, who left the location and later returned armed with a cutlass. The court was told that Bobb approached the VC from behind and dealt him a chop to the left side shoulder.
As a result, Allen was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) where he underwent emergency surgery. Bobb was subsequently arrested and the present charge was instituted.
Meanwhile, in an explanation to the court, the defendant stated that it is habitual for the VC to not pay him for work done.
Nevertheless, Magistrate Daly, after listening to the facts, handed down the sentence.
