Groundsman remains in custody for wounding teacher

The 37-year-old groundsman who was recently arrested after he was accused of knocking a basic-school teacher unconscious, remains in custody.

Clinton Irons, who has been charged with unlawful wounding, was remanded when he appeared in the Port Maria Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday.

Hospitalised is Jacqueline Samuels, a teacher at the Timothy Burke Basic School in Lucky Hill, St Mary.


Allegations are that on November 20, Samuels got in an argument with the accused over actions she had taken against Irons' son, a student at the school.

It is reported that Irons' son had urin-ated on himself in class and was given a mop to clean up the floor.

The child was said to have repeatedly urinated on himself instead of going to the restroom.

It is alleged that during the argument, Irons, a groundsman at the school, used a brick to hit Samuels in the head.

Samuels was rushed to the St Ann's Bay Hospital and later transferred to the Kingston Public Hospital.
