Teen charged for wounding pregnant girlfriend

A teenager was released on his own recognisance after he was charged for wounding his pregnant girlfriend.
The teen stood before Magistrate Annette Singh on Monday in the Children’s Court, located in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts compound.
The 17-year-old is accused of stabbing his 16-year-old girlfriend several times about her head after they were involved in a heated argument on January 30, 2019, at East Ruimveldt, Georgetown.
The prosecution is contending that an argument ensued between the two and the accused took a sharp, pointed object and began to stab her.
However, in court on Monday, the teenager denied committing the act.
The case was held in camera, but it was revealed that the teenager, who is six months pregnant, is still hospitalised. The case will continue on February 22, 2019.
