Pembroke man admits assaulting woman

Court reports were ordered on a Pembroke man this morning after he admitted assaulting a woman.

Seymour Ramotar, 34, pleaded guilty to a count of assault causing bodily harm in an incident on February 9 last year.

The Crown alleged that the complainant had attempted to intervene in a fight between Ramotar and his wife after he had begun punching her, but that the defendant turned his attention to her, punched the complainant repeatedly in the face before dragging her off the property by her hair.

When interviewed by officers, Ramotar admitted gripping the complainant by her hair and throwing her out of the property, but denied punching her.

While he denied the offence in an initial court appearance, he pleaded guilty this morning in Magistrates' Court today.

Magistrate Archibald Warner ordered a Social Inquiry Report on Ramotar, adjourning sentencing until August 4.
