A Sweetes resident accused of chopping two children and a woman with a cutlass is awaiting word from a psychiatrist to determine the way forward for his criminal matter. Jared Robinson is said to have attacked an eight-year-old girl and her mother, Tanisha Gregory, plus his 14-year-old cousin, in April 2020.
Robinson, who was 31 at the time, was arrested and charged with attempted murder and malicious damage that same month. However, in November 2020, when the defendant appeared before Magistrate Ngaio Emanuel-Edwards in the All Saints Magistrate’s Court, he heard that the Director of Public Prosecutions had instructed police to add a new charge of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm. Robinson was told in the High Court yesterday that his hearing was being pushed back to February 28th pending the court’s receipt of the psychiatrist’s report.
