A Success, East Coast Demerara man who allegedly went berserk last week Friday, choking a five-year-old and stabbing his girlfriend and mother-in-law before hijacking a car, was yesterday remanded to prison for the crimes.
The man, Julian Sargeant appeared before Magistrate Alisha George at the Sparendaam Magistrates’ Courts yesterday. He was charged with two counts of unlawful wounding as it relates to injuries his girlfriend, Tiffany Mc Beth, 19, and her mother Maggie Mc Beth, 64.
Both of them reside at Back Street, Peter’s Hall, East Bank Demerara.
He, however, received no charges for the attack he launched on the young girl.
According to reports, Sargeant, 36, a labourer, woke up in the wee hours of the morning and began choking Tiffany’s five-year-old niece. When his girlfriend intervened, he started to beat and choke her, too.
The commotion caused her mother to wake up and come over from the other room that her daughter was occupying.
A struggle to have the man stop his assault on Tiffany and the child led to Sargeant arming himself with a knife and stabbing Tiffany and her mother several times.
The women however put up a fierce fight and caused the man to run out of the house.
They were taken to the hospital where they were treated for multiple stab wounds and later discharged.
As it relates to the five-year-old girl, a source indicated that she sustained a fractured face.
After the attack, Sargeant hijacked a motorcar and made good his escape. He was later apprehended.
Back in court, Sargeant, who had no legal representation, also faced robbery-under-arms charges with respect to the stolen car. He was also charged for dangerous driving.
After convincing submissions by the Police Prosecutor, the Magistrate remanded the accused to prison.
He is due back in court on August 29.
