According to police prosecutor Sergeant 4906 Bangura, the alleged incident occurred on 8 June at Brikama Kabafita.

The lawyer for the accused Counsel Leigh applied for bail but Sergeant 4906 Bangura opposed it, arguing the victim and the accused are neighbours, and there is a high possibility that another offence can be committed if the accused is granted bail.

Presiding Magistrate Sambou decided not to grant bail and ordered that the accused person be remanded at the Mile II Central Prisons.  The case resumes on July 11 2024.
