Wilson was arrested on Friday, May 19, by the Women and Children Protection section (WACPS) for allegedly assaulting the victim named Jerome Chea.
“Three days ago I sent the boy to buy me beans, I gave him LD$180.00 to go and get me pepper from the market. I waited for him that whole day but I didn’t see him. Yesterday, I told his elder sister about it because it is not his first time this has happened. Sometimes when he does it, I wouldn’t accept him back, but people would beg me then I will forgive him”, Wilson said.
She narrated that to her surprise the boy denied receiving the money he has been accused of stealing after his sister confronted him. He told his sister in my presence:
“She didn’t give him any money. I beat him with the rattan and I took the blade just because I was angry I cut him on his butt but I never expected it to go that way,” she stated.
The victim told investigators that he was on his way to his biological mother’s house but was told by his sister that he was called by his mom (Wilson).
Jerome Chea said he saw the accused at her shop after, where she beat him with a rattan and used a new blade from her shop to deeply cut his butt, back and hands.
“When I went home, she started beating me, from there she took the new razor blade from the pack, then she chop, chop (cut) me and put pepper in the sore,” he lamented.
Chea said the accused sent him to buy beans, but he lost the money and was afraid to return home because he was always beaten by the accused.
“She beat me on the porch and carried me inside her shop and gashed me. There were plenty people there, a Fula woman, Nigerian and Aunty Precious and other people,” he told investigators.
The victim is currently covered in stitches from his back to the bottom of his left buttock. The accused is expected to be sent to court shortly but the crime is billable, and a bond could be filed for her release pending indictment for prosecution.
