A MAN who allegedly threw a flammable liquid on a woman has been denied bail.
Peter Ramjit, 33 of Williamsville, faced San Fernando magistrate Kerianne Byer on Monday charged with throwing a noxious or explosive substance with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, maliciously damaging the woman’s car and larceny of her gold chain.
The alleged offences occurred last Wednesday at Morne Roche Road, Williamsville. Ramjit allegedly threw the substance on the 35-year-old woman, damaged her vehicle with the flammable liquid and tried to set it ablaze and pulled her gold chain from around her neck. The charges were laid by constable Seepersad of the Gasparillo police station.
Ramjit was represented by attorney Sasha Singh who petitioned for bail for her client.
Police prosecutor Sgt Harold Ishmael however objected as he cited the seriousness of the allegations and that Ramjit had a previous conviction for malicious damage.
Byer remanded him into custody until July 24.
