Man accused of injuring babymother gets new court date
A man accused of wounding his babymother in a dispute over his child and his new girlfriend was ordered to return to the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court for a mention hearing.

He is Omar Rampassard, charged with wounding with intent.

The complainant, who is a government worker and a Jamaica Constabulary Force recruit, alleged that Rampassard, who appeared in court with his new girlfriend, used a stone to hit her in the back of her head causing a laceration, following an argument between the two.

"I have a character to maintain being that I work with the government, and I am a recruit for the JCF. Mr Rampassard came over and spit in my face and I spit back in his face," the complainant said.

In defending himself, Rampassard alleged that the complainant came to his house attempting to stab him and his current girlfriend. He admitted to being guilty of only one thing - dating both women concurrently.

Rampassard told the court: "I was with both women, your honour. That is true. I was with both of them at the same time".

Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey told the accused: "You're a player!"

The accused was ordered to return to court for a mention hearing on February 26, pending a medical report.
