September 04, 2018

Shanika Robinson, one of three St James women who reportedly attacked and stabbed well-known journalist Allan Lewin on June 1, made her first appearance in the St James Parish Court last Wednesday.

Robinson is charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

According to reports, Robinson was one of three women who accosted Lewin in the vicinity of the courthouse and the Montego Bay Post Office, and stabbed him several times all over his body.

Lewin sustained wounds to his head, back, side, and right hand, and was taken to the Cornwall Regional Hospital for treatment.

It is understood that one of the women had accused Lewin of kidnapping her sister, a claim which Lewin denied before he was attacked.

When Robinson appeared before presiding judge Natalie Creary-Dixon last Wednesday, the court was told that the other two women in the incident have not yet been apprehended.

Robinson's bail was subsequently extended until October 9, when the case will be mentioned.
