They were also charged with common assault, harm, use of threatening words, and wounding Henry.

According to Henry’s and Chi’s report, the men threatened Henry when they saw him approaching.
“We wah kill yuh feh talk out against we party,” they reportedly told Henry.

Both men were accused of assaulting and wounding a police officer.

Henry reported to police that he was buying food, when a Mitsubishi pickup truck pulled up behind him and the two men came out and began to abuse and assault him.
