A man has been bailed for wounding a logger who went to him to fight
Kaieteur News – After making an appearance in court yesterday, a 36-year-old man was bailed for allegedly wounding a logger who approached him for a fight.
The defendant, Humphrey Hope of Upper Berbice River, appeared at Linden Magistrates’ Court before Magistrate Wanda Fortune when the wounding charge was read to him.
Hope was not required to plead to the charge he alleged, on April 5, 2021, at Kwakwani Park, Upper Berbice River, Region Ten, that he illegally and maliciously injured Adolph Allicock, better known as “Dog Man ”.
According to a police report, Allicock believes Hope is having an affair with his wife and has been upset with him for some time now.
On the day in question, around 22: 35hrs, he saw Allicock Hope walking with friends and decided to approach him with a rum bottle in his right hand.
Kaieteur News had reported that Allicock had started an argument with Hope and allegedly hit him with the rum bottle. Hope’s bottle hit his face.
In revenge, Hope picked up a piece of wood that he allegedly fired Allicock several times. Allicock was struck to the left side of his face, forehead, shoulder and lower left leg. He was later taken to the Kwakwani Hospital Complex, where he received treatment and admission. His condition was judged to be serious.
After the matter was reported, Hope was arrested and subsequently charged with wounding Allicock. Magistrate set Fortune Hope on $ 75,000 bail and adjourned the matter until May 21, 2021.
