Court to decide if ... MAN BITES LOVER FOR CHEATING

A man, who allegedly bit his lover, after accusing her of being unfaithful to him during a fight, was hauled before the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

Arden DaCosta is charged with unlawful wounding. He was fingerprinted.

The court heard that DaCosta picked up a woman in his motor vehicle with whom he shared a relationship. During the car ride, DaCosta accused her of having a relationship with another man.

An altercation ensued and DaCosta allegedly beat and bit her. During the scuffle inside the vehicle, she held on to the steering wheel and started to scream at a passing cop. She jumped from the vehicle and made a report to the police.

DaCosta was later nabbed and charged.

In court, the lawyer representing DaCosta asked Senior Resident Magistrate (RM) Georgiana Fraser for more time in the matter. since he was of the view that the complainant should be charged for injuring his client.

After having the matter stood down in the court, the RM told the lawyer that a charge against the complainant was not her concern at the moment.

The matter was subsequently set for mention on August 28.
