The trial of one Nfamara Sanyang, who was charged with assault causing actual bodily harm, continued recently at the Brikama Magistrates' Court before Magistrate Secka.

Testifying as the second prosecution witness, Rohey Kanteh, a resident of Lamin Sanchaba, told the court that she knew the complainant, Keith Leken, and the accused person, Nfamara Sanyang.

According to her, on 29 August 2010 at around 2300 hours, she was in the compound of the complainant, Keith Leken, when she heard a knock at the compound gate.

She said she woke up the complainant and asked him whether he was expecting anybody and the complainant told her that he was not expecting anyone.

"The complainant told me to go and check who was knocking," she explained. "The accused Nfamara Sanyang then jumped over the fence and subsequently hit the complainant, Keith Leken, on his head with a stick till he fell down."

She said she then called one Richard Gomez to help her because she could not go out as she was a female and the accused had threatened to kill her with a cutlass.

She said Richard took the complainant to the Yundum Police Station and reported the matter.

The complainant, she added, was later referred to Bunjulinding Health Centre for treatment.

The case was adjourned till 28 October 2010 for continuation of hearing.
