A 36-year-old St Andrew man, who was dragged before the St Andrew Parish Court, in January of this year, for assaulting his baby mother, but was later set free, after he apologized, and proposed to her while inside the Courtroom, was remanded into custody, when he reappeared in court on Wednesday, March 31, for repeating the same offence, with the same woman.
On this occasion, Andre Chantiloupe, was arrested on March 1, on charges of Assault Occasioning Bodily Harm, and pleaded guilty when he reappeared again appeared before the St Andrew Parish Court, on Wednesday.
The accused man was then given a tongue lashing by presiding judge, Justice Lori-Ann Cole-Montague for his cruel behaviour against the woman, and also remanded him into custody until May 14, when he will be sentenced.
Reports are that on March 1, Chantiloupe went to his baby mother’s house to drop off money for their son, but she was not at home. He then waited for her to return, and when she did, he asked her where she was coming from, and she told him she was out transacting business.
The accused reportedly launched an attack on the woman, and almost choked her to death. She only managed to escape after family members came to her assistance.
It is also reported that the woman had to break off the engagement with Chantiloupe, days after he proposed to her earlier this year, as he was constantly abusing her.
