By Aaron Humes: A female teenager, 15, says she was beaten with a curtain rod and punched in the face during an argument.

Security guard 28-year-old Chaves Garbutt of Mahogany Heights, Belize District, appeared in court charged with wounding.

The teenager and her mother reported to police that on January 30, she was at home a and about to comb her sister’s hair when Garbutt stopped her.

She went to her room and he asked for the comb. He grabbed it as she was about to give it to him, she said, and she walked off and went to turn on her laptop.

Garbutt demanded she clean her room now, waving away her suggestion to clean it later. He then pulled out a wire attached to the laptop and picked up a curtain rod lying on the bed.

Despite her warning, he allegedly began beating her, continuing even when the rod broke.

In court, Garbutt who was unrepresented pleaded not guilty and with no objection to bail, the Magistrate offered him bail of $1,000 plus one surety of the same amount. He was ordered to stay away from the virtual complainant or any members of her family; he is also not to be arrested or charged with any offense whilst out on bail or his bail could be revoked.

Garbutt’s next court date is March 27, 2024.
