Man reportedly mobbed while dressed as woman case heard in court

A woman and her two daughters accused of beating their alleged gay relative and biting him on his ear told the court that they never touched him and that he was beaten by a mob after he showed up at nine-night dressed like a woman.

Patricia Bignall, 51-year-old construction worker of Cockburn Pen in Kingston, is accused of using a stone to hit her nephew on his hand while one of her 19-year-old daughters, Carlene Thompson, is accused of holding the complainant's hand for her sister, Pollyanna Osbourne, to bite the complainant on his ears.

Bignall is also accused of threatening to kill the complainant.

The trio however denied beating the complainant, claiming that he was attacked by a mob of men who saw him in his female attire.

“A him come a de people dem nine night dress up like him a woman," Bignall said. “A de nine-night me deh when me daughter dem run come tell me say him dress up like woman and dem a beat him.

“My daughters then go up to him and say, ‘yeah man, you seet we tell you fi stop gwaan like girl’, and him say that im ago f... them up,” she added.

Bignall said the complainant then wrongly told the police that they were the ones who had beaten him.

“We didn't beat him and all him do a dress up like girl. Him a 29 and him put on uniform and gwaan like him a girl,” she said.

She also told the court that the complainant was a troublemaker.

“Up to yesiday dem charge him fi loitering in New Kingston, him lurking, him thief, this bwoy,” Bignall said.

The complainant however maintained that they had beaten him.

“Har daughter dem gang me a Three Miles and bite me behind me ears,” he said.

Bail for the three accused was subsequently extended for them to return to court on August 11 for trial.

According to the complainant in his statement, on June 10 around 11:45 pm he was at a nine-night in the community when his aunt approached him and told him that she heard that he wanted to beat her. The complainant denied the reports and told the aunt that there was nothing on her to beat.

The aunt reportedly got upset and started cursing the complainant who traded words with her, which resulted in her throwing a stone and hitting him on his hands before leaving.

Shortly after, the complainant was reportedly confronted by the sisters and was bitten on his ears by Osbourne after Thompson held his hands behind him.

The matter was reported and Bignall was charged with unlawful wounding and threatening the crown witness while the others were charged with assault occasioning bodily harm.
