A Columbian national who is charged with assaulting a woman jumped over the prisoner’s dock during his court appearance on Thursday, held onto the said woman, and then choked her, a Police report said.
The incident took place in the presence of the magistrate presiding at the Wales Magistrate’s Court. The Police said that Alberto Jose was taken to court at around noon on Thursday to answer to the offence of assault committed on Yulerdy Caromata, a Venezuelan national.
However, while being escorted to the courtroom, Jose jumped the prisoner’s dock, held onto Caromata, and choked her. The accused was later restrained by a Police constable and escorted to the lock-ups.
He was further remanded to prison until March 30, 2022.
