Man admits sending threatening message

Court reports were ordered for a Sandys landscaper this morning after he admitted threatening to beat up a woman and her brother.

Quantae’ Bulford, 21, pleaded guilty to a single count of sending a phone message of a “menacing character” in an incident on January 17.

In the WhatsApp message, Bulford threatened to assault a woman with whom he had been in a relationship, along with her brother.

He was subsequently arrested for the message and, during a police interview, admitted sending it.

Bulford told police that he sent the message after an argument in which the brother threatened Bulford’s father.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo ordered a Social Inquiry Report on Bulford, releasing him until March 31 on $2,000 bail with a like surety.
