Rasbert Turner, Portmore Star Writer

A man who allegedly doused the mother of his child and another man with a corrosive substance was ordered remanded when he appeared in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court on assault charges.

He is Neville Parry, 35-year-old labourer of Swallowfield in St Andrew.

When the case was mentioned on Tuesday, Parry pleaded not guilty. He told the court that it was not acid that he had used to burn the mother of his child and the other complainant, a taxi operator.

''Your honour, me and mi babymother have a little difference, but is not acid mi dash pon har, and the last time mi come a court fi wound har dat done wid,'' he said.

Having heard that, Resident Magistrate Marcia Dunbar-Green told the investigating officer to ensure that the file in the matter be completed as the accused would not be granted bail.

The court was told that the accused has a history of violence and that he fled the scene after the incident. He denied this allegation but was still remanded until January 22 when the matter will again be mentioned.

Allegations are that on August 27 at about 9:45 p.m. both complaintants were in a motor car. As they exited the Pines Plaza in Portmore, St Catherine, they were reportedly attacked by Parry who threw a corrosive substance on the upper body of both parties.

He reportedly ran away from the scene and was not held until two weeks ago. He was subsequently charged with two counts of assault occasioning grievous bodily harm.
