Man sentenced for malicious wounding


SEON Bobb called ‘Banks’ was on Friday, September 13, 2019, sentenced to 18 months’ imprisonment by Senior Magistrate Leron Daly, for wounding a man.

Particulars of the charge stated that, on September 9, 2019, at Werk-en-Rust, he unlawfully and maliciously wounded Anthony Allen.

Police prosecutor, Christopher Morris, told the court that Bobb and Allen were known to each other. On the day in question, around 09:30 hours, Bobb and Allen were working on the same minibus, after which Allen refused to give Bobb any money for the job.
