Stabbing case goes to Grand Court

A man charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm following a stabbing at the weekend appeared in Summary Court Tuesday.

The charge against Mark Anthony Seymour arose from an incident in the early hours of Saturday, Nov. 21, in the vicinity of the Nectar Lounge parking lot on West Bay Road. The 18-year-old victim had been stabbed in the chest.

Seymour, who will be 31 on Nov. 25, was represented by attorney John Furniss.

Mr. Furniss and Magistrate Valdis Foldats agreed that wounding with intent is a charge that can be dealt with only in the Grand Court. The matter was transmitted there for mention on Friday, Dec. 4.

Seymour, a resident of George Town, was remanded in custody until then.

He is also scheduled to appear in Summary Court that day for a charge of disorderly conduct at the George Town Police Station on Nov. 21.
