Thirty-one-year-old Jared Robinson who was charged with attempted murder and malicious damage in April this year, was today issued an additional charge in the All Saints Magistrate’s Court.
On April 11, he allegedly attacked a 14-year-old, along with an eight-year-old girl and her mother, Tanisha Gregory.
During what was supposed to be the committal proceedings before Magistrate Ngaio Emanuel-Edwards today, the prosecution informed the Court that the Director of Public Prosecutions instructed them to add a new charge of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
The charge was added, and the matter was adjourned for committal on January 27.
If the Magistrate is satisfied that the prosecution has enough evidence against the Swetes man, the matter will be sent up to the High Court for trial.
