On Thursday, July 19th, Joseph Castillo, 43, a butcher of Gibnut Street appeared unrepresented  in the Magistrate’s Court to answer to charges of attempted murder, the use of deadly means of harm and  dangerous harm against Salvadoran national, Jose Argueta, 29.

   No plea was taken in court because the offenses are indictable and bail was also denied. Castillo was remanded to prison until August 20.

On Sunday, July 8, 2012, at around 4:00 p.m., Argueta was socializing at Good Fortune Bar &Pool, located on Newtown Barracks when an argument ensued between the two.

According to Argueta, Castillo then pulled out a knife and stabbed him to the left arm pit. He was treated for injuries at the Karl Husner Memorial Hospital, where he was later visited by police.
 As a result, Castillo was charged with attempted murder, use of deadly means of harm and dangerous harm.
