Teenager accused of knife attack
A teenager was charged yesterday in connection with a machete attack on a pizza delivery man.
It was alleged in Magistrates' Court that Malachi Fox, 17, wounded Raymond Mouchette with a machete with intent to do grievous bodily harm as he robbed him.
Mr Fox was also charged with the theft of $62 worth of food and possession of a bladed article.
The incident is alleged to have happened on the evening of Wednesday, January 8, in Sandys.
Mr Fox, from Sandys, did not enter a plea as the case must be heard in the Supreme Court.
Alan Richards, for the prosecution, told the court that Mr Mouchette, 40, a Four Star Pizza employee, suffered cuts to his neck and right elbow, as well as a broken arm and broken fingers.
He added that another man was alleged to have been involved, but he had not been traced.
Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe adjourned the case until the Supreme Court's February arraignments session and released Mr Fox on $10,000 bail.
He ordered the defendant to wear an electronic tag, follow a 9pm to 6am curfew and report to Hamilton Police Station three times a week.
