Inagua man jailed for alleged wounding of man with cutlass


Tribune Staff Reporter


A MAN was remanded after he allegedly wounded a man at a police station in Inagua and assaulted four others with a cutlass last week.

Magistrate Raquel Whyms charged Deshoawn Smith, 28, with wounding, assault, threats of harm and four counts of assault with a deadly weapon.

Smith allegedly threatened and assaulted Angel Arnett at Heather’s Variety Store on Kortwright Street in Inagua on November 20.

Later that day, Smith allegedly wounded Stafford Arnett at the Matthew’s Town Police Station and assaulted Attavia Ferguson, Keora Kelly, Tia Ferguson and Shenai Johnson with a broad-mouth cutlass.

Following the defendant’s not-guilty plea to all charges, the prosecution objected to his bail, given the seriousness of the offences.

Smith was remanded to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services until his trial, which is set for the circuit court in Inagua on December 6.
