Man hits co-worker in face with broom

A man who has found himself in hot water after he and his co-worker were involved in an altercation was given 12 months' probation, when he was hauled before the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday.

He is Michael Stanbury, charged with assault occasioning bodily harm.

The court heard that on the day of the incident in question, Stanbury and the complainant, his co-worker, were both employed to a police station in the Corporate Area. It is reported that both men got involved in an argument after Stanbury told him that he could not use the bathroom. An altercation later ensued and Stanbury used a broomstick to hit his co-worker in the face causing pain, bruising and swelling.

Stanbury vehemently denied hitting the man in the face with the broomstick and was then given a stern reprimand by Resident Magistrate Grace Henry-McKenzie. This was subsequently followed by the 12-month probation order.
