Shopkeeper pleads not guilty to attacking boy in Ladyville

Zhuo Feng Luo

A nine-year-old boy who was harmed late last week was back in school today despite injuries he sustained allegedly inflicted by a Chinese businessman.  The child’s mother, Darlene Morris alleges that the owner of Home Ever Supermarket beat-up her son, Arden Garbutt. In an interview outside the courtroom today, Morris claimed the young student was roughed up, beaten with a plastic object then dragged from the compound of the supermarket by businessman, Zhuo Feng Luo. Luo was arraigned before Senior Magistrate, Sharon Fraser today on a charge of harm. The incident is said to have occurred on March sixteen at the supermarket at Mile thirteen on the Phillip Goldson Highway. Luo pleaded not guilty to the charge and was granted bail in the sum of six-hundred dollars plus one surety of the same amount and is scheduled to be back in court on May twenty-fifth, 2017. According to the mother, her son was attached after he got permission from Lou’s wife to retrieve a ball in their compound. Morris claims she  also called the police but was told that there was no mobile to respond immediately so she rushed Arden to the B.D.F. camp for medical attention.
