A Georgetown man was remanded on Tuesday, while another has been hospitalized in critical condition, reportedly following a cutlass attack in that North Central Windward town last Saturday.
Zelroy Joseph, 38, of Chile, Georgetown, appeared at the Serious Offences Court charged with unlawfully and maliciously wounding Camillus Forbes of Spring Village, Georgetown with intent.
Joseph was not required to plea to the indictable charge when he stood before Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne, and was remanded following strong objections to bail by Senior Prosecutor Adolphus Delpleche.
The Prosecutor told the Court that, according to his information, the victim was warded at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital suffering from an injury to the head, as a result of an alleged cutlass attack, and is said to have sustained a fractured skull.
The Prosecutor said Forbes had not yet undergone surgery, and may have to travel overseas for analysis.
Delpleche asked that the accused be remanded pending further prognosis on the victim.
The Magistrate remanded Joseph for a week pending an update on the victim’s condition.
