AN Andros man was placed on nine months probation yesterday after admitting to attacking someone with a cutlass and damaging their car over the summer.
Magistrate Kara Turnquest-Deveaux charged Cardrin Munroe, 34, with assault with a dangerous instrument, threats of death and damage.
Tye Pinder-Mackey represented the accused.
Munroe assaulted Joseph Plant with a cutlass and threatened him with death on the night of July 9 in Staniard Creek, Andros. During the incident, Munroe caused $475 worth of damage to the rear metal door of Plant’s grey 2012 Suzuki Swift.
After pleading guilty to the charge, the defendant was granted a conditional discharge and placed on nine months probation. He was also ordered to compensate the complainant $1,975. Should he fail his conditions, he would face a nine-month prison term.
