Guyana Chronicle:– A PREGNANT policewoman, who allegedly threw acid in her boyfriend’s face, appeared on Thursday at the Georgetown Magistrates’ court to answer to the charge.
Cassandra Vulture, 30, of School Street, Albouystown, appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan and denied committing the offence.
The particulars of the charge stated that last Wednesday at the corner of Camp Street and North Road, Vulture unlawfully and maliciously wounded Anthony Paul with intent to maim, disfigure, disable or cause grievous bodily harm.
The mother of three was represented by Attorney-at-Law Adrian Thompson who, in his bail application, told the court that his client and the victim are known to each other; that the victim was in the habit of abusing his client because she no longer wants a relationship with him; and that it was he who had bought the acid to use on his client.
Police prosecutor Simone Payne objected to bail due to the seriousness of the offence, and the fact that the victim is still hospitalised.
According to the police, Paul and Vulture shared a two-year relationship, but when Vulture told Paul she was pregnant, he insisted that she do a DNA test to determine who the child’s father was, as he’d caught her cheating on him with the father of her three other children.
Reports are that on the day in question at around 10:30hrs, Vulture told Paul she was feeling unwell, and he used his mother’s vehicle to take her to the hospital.
It was while they were in the vicinity of Camp Street and North Road on their way to the hospital, the police report stated, that Vulture took out a small glass bottle and threw the liquid on the victim, which caused the jersey he was wearing to immediately begin to melt.
Vulture was released on $300,000 bail, on condition that she lodges her passport and report to the Brickdam Police Station every Monday and Friday until the matter is called again on November 23.
