A 50-year-old resident of Vermont suffered grievous bodily harm after being stabbed in the left eye with a pair of scissors, police say.
The victim was not identified in the regular police bulletin this week, but police said they have charged Jamarie Bushay, a 27-year-old labourer of the South Leeward community with the offence of inflicting grievous bodily harm.
The incident occurred at Vermont about 10:30 p.m. on Nov. 21.
Bushay appeared before the Kingstown Magistrate Court for arraignment but was not allowed to plead to the indictable offence.
Bail was granted in the sum of $7,000 with one surety. He was ordered not to contact the virtual complainant and report the Vermont Police Station on Mondays between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.
The matter was transferred to the Serious Offences Court for a preliminary inquiry.
