Man nursing gunshot wounds

26

PRESS RELEASE – About 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 6, 2014, a female standing in the vicinity of a business place at Beanfield, Vieux Fort, was indecently assaulted by a young male in the full view of an off duty police officer.

The officer approached the male, identified himself to the individual and informed him that he had committed an offence by indecently assaulting the female. The suspect started insulting the police officer, who then informed him that he was under arrest.

The suspect reached in his pocket for a pair of scissors and launched at the police officer with it. The police officer attempted to disarm the suspect, who repeatedly launched at the officer with the intent of stabbing him.

The officers discharged one round of ammunition at the suspect, hitting him in the leg. He was subsequently taken to St. Jude’s hospital where he was treated and admitted.

The matter is currently being investigated.

  1. How many of you really know what indecent assault mean and how many of you assault people? When you are sure that u understand what assault means and has a true picture of what happened on that day only then can you make judgement. On the other hand don't you expect the cop to give a report of textbook quality performance . And a piece of fact consider is that the cop did not shoot to stop him from running.

  2. Why now all the bravo to the officer shooting this ypung man, is it because it was in the leg or because it is a case where he assaulted a female, now so many are calling for taking them off the streets. I hope officers don't get fooled by these two faced comments because tomorrow these same people will call for your head on a platter

    Just saying!!!!

    • Your comment amazed me. So you're telling me if someone pushed you a few times, you wouldn't response in kind? If you say you wouldn't response with force, you're a damn liar.

  7. Officer should have discharged the entire magazine into that piece of filth. Here is an officer who had every reason to finish off a criminal and he demonstrated restraint.Good job officer.

  8. How about shooting him in the groin or upper leg area? We need to make the country safe for visitors and residents alike. One way to start is by disabling all scumbags like that one.

  11. That's right Officer, those thugs get away too many times and think they can terrorize everybody. More policemen need to meet more of those guys who walk the streets brandishing weapons. Hats off to you Officer, push up your chest and walk proudly.
