– landlord allegedly nailed windows and doors shut

A spat between a Linden landlord and a tenant landed them in court on Wednesday, charged with assault and disturbance. Both Tinesha Victor of 413 One Mile, Wismar, Linden, and her landlord Lesli Barrett, 37, a farmer of 592 Half Mile, Wismar, were granted bail when they appeared before Magistrate Clive Nurse at the Linden Magistrate’s Court.
Barrett was charged separately for disturbance of a tenant’s peaceable enjoyment and was granted $25,000 bail. It is alleged that on Sunday, September 11, Barrett nailed down the windows and doors of the building being rented by Victor, without the tenant’s consent. He however pleaded not guilty.
It is also alleged that Barrett unlawfully assaulted Victor on the said date at her address.
He was granted $10,000 bail, in addition to being placed on a bond to keep the peace.
Victor was also co- charged with unlawfully assaulting Barrett on September 11 at One Mile, to which she pleaded not guilty.
The two are scheduled to appear in court on October 12.
