Rasbert Turner, STAR Writer

A man who allegedly tried to rape his relative was remanded when he appeared in court yesterday.

Robert McKellop, 25-year-old labourer of Browns Hall district, St Catherine, is charged with assault with intent to rape.

When the case was mentioned in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court, it was revealed that there were outstanding statements to be collected for the file to be completed.

Resident Magistrate Marcia Dunbar-Green told the accused that bail was being denied as he needed an alternative accommodation.

Allegations are that on November 14 last year, McKellop went to the complainant's home. He reportedly held on to her hand and told her "A long time mi want di ..... and yuh a hitch." A struggle then developed. The woman who is his relative was allegedly held by the throat and thrown on a bed.

'private' parts

She managed to kick him on his 'private' parts and freed herself.

Her boyfriend entered the house and she related her ordeal.

A report was made to the police and following an investigation he was charged with assault with intent to rape.

He is to reappear in court on February 19 when the matter is to be mentioned.

The clerk of court was Nicole Kellier and the defence attorney was Hugh Faulkner.
