A boy loses sight in one eye and a man is in police custody following an altercation Monday (19 December) in a West Bay yard.
Police say they arrested a 20-year-old West Bay man Tuesday (20 December) on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm.
It stems from an incident on Duxie’s Lane, when police say the man hit a 16-year-old boy with a piece of wood. A police spokesperson says it’s believed the boy has permanently lost vision in his right eye.
The two knew each other.
