Not even the presence of the joint security forces in Denham Town could prevent Karen Robinson from wounding a minor.

Robinson pleaded “guilty with explanation” to a charge of unlawful wounding.

The court was told that Robinson cut the minor in his face.

Robinson told the court that she was inside her house cleaning when her daughter came and told her that the complainant hit her in the face.

Robinson said that when she went to the complainant's mother to inquire what had happened the woman said: “Him done do it already.

“So mi say anytime me see him mi ago let her hit him back,” Robinson, who was seemingly still upset, told the court.

Robinson said the following day her daughter told her that the complainant was downstairs.

Robinson said she went downstairs where she attempted to hold on to the complainant.

She said that the complainant, who was armed with a knife, attacked her.

Crooks asked Robinson how the complainant was injured.

Robinson said the complainant was injured when she tried to push him off her.

Before extenting her bail, Crooks ordered that she should report to the Denham Town Police Station on Mondays and Fridays between 6:00 am and 6:00 pm.

In addition to that, Crooks told both parties that they should not interfere with each other.

A March 26 date was subsequently set for both parties to return to court.
