A 24-year-old, self-employed man, who was released from HMP Dodds last week, has found himself back on remand at the penal facility.
Tremaine Dario Yarde, of Rock Gap, Spooners Hill, St Michael, denied before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant that he assaulted Vincent Davis yesterday. The accused also pleaded not guilty to escaping from Central Police Station after he was charged with the assault.
Prosecutor Station Sergeant Samuel Hinds objected to bail on the grounds that Yarde was a flight risk.
“The [accused] tried to go through the main gate . . . . He is a flight risk at the moment . . . and is alleged to have committed the [first] offence while on bail,” the prosecutor submitted.
However, in his bail application, Yarde told the magistrate that he did not wish to go back to prison as he had just secured a new job over the weekend.
“This man [Davis] obsessed over me Ma’am. I now start to catch back myself,” Yarde said, while appealing to the magistrate to place him on bond, a curfew or to give him reporting conditions.
“I now come from prison last week and I don’t want to go back there,” he added.
However, his application was denied.
Yarde returns to the No. 2 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on April 17.
