…released on ,000 bailArraigned on Monday before Georgetown Magistrate Judy Latchman, 45-year-old security guard Paula Gill of Laing Avenue, Georgetown admitted that, on June 15, 2017, at Charlestown Secondary School, she had unlawfully assaulted Suesattie Latchand so as to cause her actual bodily harm.Police Prosecutor Shawn Gonsalves, in disclosing the facts of the matter, told the court that both the VC and defendant are security guards at the school; and on the day in question, the defendant asked the VC to clean the guard hut, as it was reportedly in an unsanitary condition.This precipitated an argument that escalated into a scuffle, during which the VC sustained injuries to her body. He said the VC, who had failed to attend court, is being cross-charged, and an arrest warrant has been issued for her arrest.The defendant, also, explained to the court that the incident escalated into a scuffle after the VC had grabbed her. “She hit me first,” Gill told the court, adding that she also had sustained injuries to her body.Following Gill’s explanation, Magistrate Latchman entered a not-guilty plea on her behalf; and because the prosecutor had no objection, placed the defendant on $60,000 bail. The case will continue on June 26.
