Rasbert Turner, Star Writer

A Portmore man who injured a woman at her workplace a month ago was fined $25,000 and given a six-month suspended sentence in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

He is Ronald Williams, a 20-year-old labourer from Gibson Road in Bridgeport.

When Williams appeared before Resident Magistrate Marcia Dunbar-Green, he pleaded guilty.

The accused was told that his action was unprovoked and that he should be more careful.

The court heard that on November 19, this year, the accused went into Bridgeport Mini Mart.

He reportedly ordered a bag juice. There was an altercation between himself and the complainant, who is a cashier.

The accused then used a scale to wound the woman above her left eye.

A report was made to the police and Williams was charged with unlawful wounding by Constable Compton Russell.
