The police officer who was charged with two counts of assault in Babonneau has been suspended.

Special Police Constable Troy Philomon received his letter of suspension on Tuesday, January 12, 2016.

Philomon told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) on Wednesday that the alleged victim did not receive any “extensive injuries” as was reported, and he believes it is a malicious move to discredit him.

“I will definitely take up the matter. The matter was already resolved at the station level, because there was no fight. Certain persons didn’t feel it was enough and they chose to do otherwise,” the officer explained.

The officer said his reputation and image has been tarnished as a result of this incident.

Philomon was arrested and charged on January 8, 2016 for allegedly assaulting Ruth Edmund of Paix Bouche, Babonneau on Tuesday, January 5, 2016 about 8:33 a.m. at the Babonneau Police Station.

He was granted bail in the sum of EC$750 on each count.

The matter has been set for February 4, 2016 in the First District Court.

  5. he is actually stating that she "did not receive any extensive injuries" that to me is admitting to the charges that he assaulted the employee....bones don't have to break my brother for it to be considered assault, you know better. I'm sure you must be allegedly beating someone else too.

Police officer or not, you break the law you have to pay the consequences, make an example outta of him. You cant blow your tops because the cleaning lady spray some form of cleaning agent amd it came into contact with your clothes. That was not call for dam idiot. Live and learn fool let that be lesson. For all.
