Three women were on Friday all charged with assault and wounding when they made their appearance at the Vreed-en-Hoop Magistrate’s Court before Magistrate Christel Lambert.
Aesha Jacobs, 23, of Lot 198 Anna Catherina West Coast Demerara (WCD) and Tricia Rodney, 36, of 42 Gas Station Street, Anna Catherina, WCD, pleaded not guilty to the offence, which alleged that on June 4, they unlawfully and maliciously wounded and assaulted Shelize Gaskin with intent to cause bodily harm.
The court heard that on the same day and at the same location, both women unlawfully and maliciously assaulted Nikita Gilks with intent to cause bodily harm.
Meanwhile, Shelize Gaskin 23 of 377 Section C Sophia, Greater Greater, pleaded not guilty to the charge which alleged that on June 4, she unlawfully and maliciously assaulted and wounded Aesha Jacobs and Tricia Rodney with intent to cause bodily harm.
The prosecution’s case contended that on the day in question, the women were involved in an argument that spiralled out of control, as such a fight ensued.
They were all arrested and charged after the matter was reported to the Police by eyewitnesses.
They were all released in $30,000 bail each. The case will continue on June 23, 2016.
