Tribune Staff Reporter


A TEENAGE boy allegedly stabbed a fellow RM Bailey student during a brawl at a bus stop on Marathon Road last week.

Magistrate Algernon Allen, Jr, charged the 13-year-old boy with grievous harm. He name is being withheld because he is a minor.

The defendant’s mother appeared with him in court, and Keith Seymour represented him.

Police reports indicate that the 16-year-old victim was involved in a physical argument with another juvenile around 4.19pm. The defendant is accused of intervening in the fight and stabbing the victim with a knife in the leg and lower back.

The stabbing victim was listed in stable condition in hospital.

The juvenile pleaded not guilty to the charge. His bail was set at $2,000 with one or two sureties on condition he obeys a daily residential curfew from 4pm to 6am.

His trial starts on November 14.
