A charge of Grievous Harm was laid on a 40-year-old Security Guard of New Hampshire, St George, after he allegedly bit out a portion of another resident’s top lip.
Paul Amade was charged on Wednesday following Sunday’s altercation, which occurred due to a misunderstanding while gambling at the Willis cross road.
The victim, who is in his 20s, is presently warded at the General Hospital, hoping that soon he will get the opportunity for surgeons to restore his top lip.
The Grenadian Voice understands that the incident occurred when Amade picked up a card from the ground and said he won the game.
The victim then refused to accept that win and took back his $10 from the table. Amade grabbed the victim’s pocket to retrieve the $10 and the victim grabbed and held onto his pocket as well, leading to a scuffle in which Amade bit off a portion of his top lip.
Amade was granted bail in the amount of $10,000.00 with two sureties, and will appear in court on May 18, 2021.
