A Fashion designer from Liberta who was involved in an altercation at the Craft Market last week has been remanded to prison after allegedly injuring two individuals.

The dispute is said to have originated from a Facebook post and intensified when the incident unfolded on October 12.

Marc Copeland, a tailor operating a stall at the Craft Market, is accused of injuring Kobe Stevens with the intent to kill and wounding his girlfriend -the mother of his 6-month-old child, Keillia Mentor.

The incident occurred when the couple, accompanied by a friend, strolled through the craft market and encountered the defendant.

 Reports suggest that the couple attempted to avoid a confrontation with the defendant, given previous exchanges on social media. However, as they prepared to depart, the defendant allegedly attacked them with a knife concealed in a shopping bag.

The consequences of the altercation were severe, with Stevens sustaining substantial injuries, while Mentor reportedly suffered a non-life-threatening head injury.

Copeland was denied bail in a recent court appearance and remanded to prison.

He will remain in custody until his committal hearing scheduled for January 15.
