A MAN was remanded to prison yesterday after he was arraigned on aggravated assault charges.
Saintera Pierrelus, 53, of East Street South appeared before Magistrate Samuel McKinney facing two counts of assault with a deadly instrument concerning an alleged attack on two law enforcement officers.
It is alleged that on Friday, November 26, he unlawfully assaulted immigration officers Corey Bonaby and Lavardo Wilmot with a cutlass.
The accused elected to be tried in Magistrate’s Court and pleaded not guilty to both charges when called on to answer to the allegations. He was denied bail and remanded to the Department of Correctional Services to await trial.
However, he has the right to apply for bail in the Supreme Court. He returns to court for trial on January 24, 2017.
