The man who allegedly bit a school principal on his penis in Portmore, St Catherine has been granted bail in the amount of $200,000. 

The Portmore resident is charged with wounding with intent and larceny of a motorcar. 

The St Catherine Parish Court heard yesterday that the accused injured the school principal, as he attempted to rob the educator of his motorcar.

A report was made to the police and the man was subsequently arrested and charged by the police.

In applying for bail, the man's attorney, Ernest Smith, told the court that his client was only "defending his integrity" when the incident occurred.

According to Smith, the school principal was a mentor to his client and took the accused for drinks.

Smith said instead of driving home his client afterwards, the principal forced himself onto the accused.

To protect his dignity, Smith said the 24-year-old man also used a knife to stab the complainant.

He said it was only after the principal jumped from the car that the accused took control of the vehicle and in the process the educator was hit.
