… Prosecution begs that court
protects other dogs
A 55-year-old security guard was yesterday remanded to prison
after being refused bail on charges ranging from assaulting a peace
officer and disorderly behaviour, to having sexual intercourse
He was refused bail because the prosecutor begged the court to
prevent him from returning to the area citing the danger to all the
other dogs there. “All the other dogs may be at risk of being
ravaged,” she said.

It is alleged that on July 18, last Jagesh Roopnauth of 131 King
Edward Street, Albouystown assaulted police officer, Gregory
Hasting, to which the accused pleaded not guilty.
Responding to the charges Roopnauth said he was framed and was under
constant attacked by the police officer who it is claimed he
assaulted. He said they both reside in the same yard and the
policeman would often complain that a dog owned by the accused
disturbed his family.
He said on the night of the incident a heated argument erupted
between the two over noise made by the dogs and the policeman
stormed out of the yard. Roopchand claimed not long after that he
was having dinner when he was suddenly interrupted by two policemen
who dragged him from his home, put what appeared to be a gun to his
side and took him to the Brickdam Police Station.
The security guard said the policeman had always tormented him and
would threaten to have him imprisoned on every occasion.
Weeping in court, Jagdesh Roopnauth said that he never assaulted the
peace officer and was told during his arrest that he was placed in
custody because the dog disturbed the officer’s daughter.
Not commenting on the other charges, the Police Prosecution however
noted that the police officer had returned home on that night after
purchasing fish and chips for his wife and found her in tears.
As stated by the Prosecution when the police officer investigated,
he was told by the woman that his daughter had discovered the
security guard, naked with an erect penis in the act of penetrating
the dog which was whimpering in either sensual bliss or ‘animal
- penis was out of his pants
The accused has been ordered to return for further trial on July 27.
