Police have charged two persons for assaulting 19-year-old Junior Combie, who is also charged for stabbing in relation to the same case.
Cousins Kiran Herman, 29, and Natalie Herman, 27, both of Bishop’s Gap, Castries, were charged with assaulting Combie, originally from Hospital Road, Castries but living at Marchand.
Combie was charged with grievous harm in connection with the stabbing of Kiran on Sept. 9, 2014 at Bishop’s Gap. However, according to reliable sources, Combie has claimed that he was assaulted by the Herman family and resorted to self-defense – a claim the Herman family has denied.
Kiran and Natalie were both granted police bail and are scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 9.
The Herman family had alleged that on Tuesday, Sept. 9 at about 7:30 a.m. Natalie and Combie had a dispute in which Combie alleged slapped her. Kiran intervened and was stabbed twice. He was admitted at Victoria Hospital but released the following morning.
However, sources close to Combie claimed he was ganged by several members of the Herman family after he and Natalie, whom he once had a relationship with, had an argument.
The Herman family has denied this, stating that Combie has no injuries to prove he was ganged and beaten by the Hermans.
