A woman was forced to dash from her boyfriend's house after another woman walked into the small structure and saw her in bed with the man whom she also calls her boyfriend.
Janice Walker confessed to approaching the woman but denied chasing her, when she appeared in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on Friday on a charge of assault at common law.
Walker told the court that she was inside her boyfriend's bathroom when she came out and saw the woman in bed.
“I said who is you. What you doing here? I was moving towards her when I tripped,” Walker said.
Parish Judge Chester Crooks asked Walker if her boyfriend was in court.
“Yeah!” Walker replied, adding that the comlpainant did not report that she was in bed when the incident took place.
Walker went further to explain that the entrance to the dwelling was open and that the complainant fled.
The court was told that neither of the women live at the boyfriend's house.
Prior to the judge setting a December 12 trial date in the night court, the complainant requested that the boyfriend appear in court.
