University student who assaulted female, slapped with two additional charges
The University of the West Indies student who allegedly held a female in his room for 3 days against her will, and assaulted her, has been slapped with two additional charges.
Twenty-year-old Matthew Hyde of Braemar Avenue, in Kingston, was previously charged with assault occasioning grievous bodily harm.
He will also answer to charges of malicious communication and false imprisonment.
The charges follow recommendations from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, on the incident which reportedly occurred at one of the UWI’s halls of residence, last week.
Reports are that between Monday, February 6 and Thursday, February 9, Hyde allegedly held the young woman against her will, repeatedly beating and burning her with a clothes iron.
Hyde was arrested after campus police alerted the local authorities to the incident.
