RM orders women to keep the peace or be jailed

Two women who were engaged in a heated dispute after they were both involved with the same man were ordered to maintain the peace or risk being locked up.

Charged with unlawful wounding and assault occasioning bodily harm are Kamo Henry and Samantha Williams both of Kingston 7 addresses.

The court heard that the women were engaged in a heated exchange which turned violent after it was revealed that they were dating the same man. On the day of the incident, both women are said to have met at a bingo table in African Gardens, August Town, Kingston 7. Williams said Henry spoke some unkind words to her so she approached her. She said Henry then took a scissors from her waist and stabbed her in the neck, upper back and right arm. Williams said she felt weak and had to be taken to the hospital.

In giving her side, Henry said Williams approached her after heated words were said. She said Williams shoved her in the chest causing her to fall heavily to the ground on her knees, injuring them.

Both women were reprimanded my Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey who ordered that they return on February 11 next year. In the meantime, she told the women, "anymore argument or fighting, I'm going to lock you up."
