While on their way, Vulture reportedly took out a bottle and threw the hazardous substance onto Paul, on his right side.The man reported that his shirt started to melt and his face and side started to burn. As such, he rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was admitted as a patient.Vulture was later picked up by Police and taken into custody.Her Attorney, Adrian Thompson told the court, however, that his client was being abused by Paul and it was he who brought the acid to throw on Vulture.Police Prosecutor Simone Payne objected to bail being granted, citing the seriousness of the offence and the fact that the Virtual Complainant (VC) was still hospitalised.Bail was, however, granted in the sum of $300,000, and Vulture was expected to return to court on November 23, 2018. She was also ordered to make weekly reports to the Brickdam Police Station.last_img
