Woman wounded with a high-heeled shoe, minor boy assaulted, and teen threatened with a gun: police investigations underway

The Police are investigating two wounding incidents and a gun assault on a 19-year-old Yorks resident.

According to reports, the Bolans Police Station was alerted to an incident at the Gentleman’s Club at Harbour View by a 911 operator, who reported that a female had been wounded.

Officers visited the club and reportedly met a 23-year-old All Saints woman sitting outside.  She had a bandage wrapped around her head, with what appeared to be blood running from her forehead.

Reportedly, the woman told the police that, while she was inside the club, she got into an altercation with another female woman, whom she identified.

During the confrontation, the alleged perpetrator took off her high- heeled shoe and hit the victim in her forehead, which caused the wound.

She was issued a Police Medical Form and given certain directives before the Emergency Medical Service arrived on the scene and transported her to the hospital.

An initial search was carried out for the alleged offender, but without success.

This offence reportedly occurred at about 3 a.m. on May 6 in Jolly Harbour.

Meanwhile, a Cooks Hill woman took her eight-year-old son to the Grays Farm Police Station.  The boy had a bleeding wound to his nose, and the mother reported that the injury had been inflicted by a young man from the neighbourhood whom she identified.

Reports say the alleged offender was subsequently brought to the station for questioning.  In the presence of the victim, the allegation was put to him, and the accused denied it.

This offence reportedly occurred at about 7:20 p.m. on May 6 at Cooks Hill.

Meanwhile, a 19-year-old Yorks villager was the victim of an assault that reportedly occurred on Amy Byers Street at about 8 p.m.

The teenager reportedly went to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) and reported that he had been assaulted with a gun by a known man from Villa.

Reports say the teenager was walking from north to east on Amy Byers Street, and, upon reaching the Baptist Church, he was approached by another young man who attempted to hold a conversation with him.

When the teenager refused to answer, the alleged perpetrator pulled a silver gun from his pocket and placed it at the youth’s head.  At this time, the Yorks resident said he began pleading with the Villa man not to shoot him – and he then walked away.

Officers later accompanied the victim to the area, where a search was carried out for the alleged offender.  It was not successful.
