Atibon Campbell, a 17-year-old resident of “Pole Yard”, Arnos Vale, was remanded into custody Monday when he appeared at the Kingstown Magistrate Court on a charge of indecently assaulting a medical student from the United States.
The incident is alleged to have taken place at Cane Hall, West St George, on March 1, 2017.
Campbell was not required to plea to the indictable charge when he appeared in court.
He was remanded into custody after the prosecutor, police constable Shamrock Pierre, objected to bail on the ground that he was on bail on another charge when he allegedly indecently assaulted the medical student.
Magistrate Bertie Pompey upheld the objection and remanded Campbell into custody.
The prosecutor asked that the matter be transferred to the Serious Offences Court. The magistrate granted the request.
Campbell is expected to appear before the Serious Offences Court on March 20.
