Police have laid four charges on a teenager who was engaged in a chopping incident in the vicinity of the St. George’s Bus Terminus three weeks ago.
Eighteen-year old Kawani Amade of Woburn, St. George’s is charged with two counts of wounding, causing grievous harm, wounding and damage to property.
The charges laid on Amade are in connection with a public fight he had with another 18-year old Kimon Lewis of Willis, St. George’s on November 16.
It is said that the incident arose due to an ongoing feud among young men from neighbouring villages in North East, St. George’s that began four months ago.
Amade who it is alleged was armed with a cutlass, is accused of causing a wound to Lewis who is also charged by the police for causing grievous harm.
Lewis is currently on remand at the Richmond Hill Prisons.
Amade who was recently released from hospital after nursing a wound is also charged with wounding Alister Bridgeman of New Hampshire, St. George’s.
That incident allegedly took place on September 26.
The 18-year old Amade also has to answer to the charge of causing a wound to Travis Richards of Woburn, and damage to the young man’s T-Shirt.
During the mid-afternoon fracas of Amade and Lewis, one Police Officer, 398 Rein Brizan received a chop on the lower end of his left hand with the cutlass that was in the young man’s possession.
As a result Amade is also charged for the offense of causing grievous harm to Constable Brizan who is a Traffic Police.
Only last Saturday at the Police Awards Ceremony Constable Brizan who resides at Windsor Forest, St. David’s was named the 2012 Policeman of the Year.
