Man Charged With Wounding, Having Knife

June 16, 2015

Appearing in Magistrates Court this morning [June 16], a 30-year-old man was charged with wounding another man and being in possession of a knife.

Sherwon Ible was not required to plead to two indictable charges, with both coming from an incident alleged to have occurred in the City of Hamilton on Saturday 13th June 2015. He was not required to plead as the charges can only be tried in the Supreme Court.

Senior Magistrate Juan Wolffe read out the first charge that, with intent to do grievous bodily harm, Mr Ible had unlawfully wounded another man; and second charge that in an Increased Penalty Zone, namely Queen Elizabeth Park [formerly Par-la-Ville Park] he was unlawfully in possession of a bladed article in the form of a 5” knife.

The Senior Magistrate granted Mr Ible bail of $15,000 and required that there be two separate sureties of $15,000 each. The Senior Magistrate also required that Mr Ible have no contact with the complainant and report three times a week to the Hamilton Police Station.

Mr Ible must re-appear for mention on 30th June.
