UPDATE: Not me cries accused; Dispute between neighbours ends bloody
Created : 2 March 2018
A man denied inflicting chop wounds on his fellow neighbour during an early morning altercation.
This was the plea of Patrick O'neal Pilgrim today when he appeared in a Bridgetown Court.
The self-employed man of Philips Road, Pine, St Michael was granted $10 000 bail with two sureties who signed for $5 000 each.
The charge alleges that Pilgrim unlawfully wounded Ryan O'neal Goodridge with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him or to do some serious bodily harm to Goodridge on March 1, 2018.
He was warned to stay away from the complainant and his property, and this was made a condition of his bail.
Pilgrim returns to court on June 18.
The matter was heard in the District 'A' Magistrates' Court before Magistrate Douglas Frederick.
Police allege that the dispute between the two men left Goodridge with chops to his head and he had to seek medical attention.
