Labourer admits damaging Global House panes

A St David’s man has admitted punching two glass panes in Global House in anger over his financial aid arrangements.

Dwayne Hassan attended the building on Church Street, Hamilton, at 9.15am on Monday, February 15, to ask why he had not been receiving his monthly payments from the financial aid department.

The 23-year-old defendant became agitated, and broke two glass window panes with his fist on Global House’s ground floor — causing $1326.75 worth of damage.

Today in Magistrates’ Court, Hassan’s lawyer Michael Scott explained that the defendant had been trying to find work as a labourer, and that his actions resulted from “frustration and desperation”.

Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe ordered a Social Inquiry Report on the Tommy Fox Road resident and adjourned sentencing until October 28, releasing him on $2,000 bail with one like surety.
