Man accused of hitting teacher faces court today

The case involving the man who has been accused of knocking a basic-school teacher unconscious is to be mentioned in the Port Maria Resident Magistrate's Court today.

Charged with wounding with intent is 37-year-old Clinton Irons.

When the matter was called up in court last week, the case was postponed pending a statement from the teacher.

The court was informed then that the teacher was out of coma, but was unable to speak.

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 urinated 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.
