A 25-year-old, who was among the forty-one patrons charged for breaches of the disaster risk management act following their attendance at a party on St. Johns Road in St. Catherine on Friday, August 07, has been slapped with another charge, after cops found that he was on bail for rape in another parish.

Police said Leon Lewis, 25-five-year-old resident of Rock River in Clarendon was charged after he was found to be in breach of the bail act.

Police said Lewis, was previously charged for aiding and abetting rape and indecent assault in St Catherine, and was granted bailed and instructed to reside in Rock River, Clarendon and that he was not to be seen in the parish of St. Catherine as a condition of his bail agreement.

He was also charged for breaching his condition of bail. His court date is being finalised.
