Senior Magistrate Colin John set bail at EC$5,000 with one surety and ordered Alexander to have no contact with Small.

He also ordered the accused man to report to the Questelles Police Station on Mondays between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., surrender his travel document and remain in the country.

The defendant asked the court for an earlier date, saying that the file was ready.

“It been in the system for some time,” he said.

However, the magistrate said that was the soonest that the court could hear the matter.
