Man gets bail in stabbing case

March 24, 2016

A St Catherine man accused of stabbing another was granted $250,000 bail in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Colin Campbell, a 40-year-old labourer from Frazier Content, Spanish Town, was granted bail by Resident Magistrate Tara Reid-Carr.

Campbell's attorney, Everton Dewar, made a successful bail application. He told the court that his client was attacked by three men and acted in self-defence at the time of the incident.

He further told the court that Campbell's house was burnt following the incident.

Bail was granted after he submitted an alternative address for Campbell. The attached condition is that Campbell must report to the Hunts Bay Police Station on Mondays and Fridays.

Allegations are that on February 21, 2016, during a physical confrontation, a knife was used to inflict several wounds to the complainant. The complainant reportedly ran from the scene and ran to the Spanish Town Police Station.

A report was made and following investigations, Campbell was subsequently charged with unlawful wounding. He is to return to court on May 24, 2016 when the matter will again be mentioned.
