Further to an online post that we shared on Facebook last night the RCIPS now confirm that two men are in police custody after a senior police officer was “seriously assaulted” during a one car crash.
CMR sources indicated that the car crashed occurred Saturday night around 9:30pm after a police cash in the vicinity of the Island Heritage roundabout on the on the Esterley Tibbetts Highway. The police have made no mention of the police pursuit. Our sources further indicated that the officer was assaulted and required an ambulance at the scene.
The officer has been admitted to the hospital with “significant head injuries and bodily injuries,” according to police. The injuries are not thought to be life threatening.
Police say two Caymanian men — ages 25- and 23-years old and both of Bodden Town — were arrested at the scene on suspicion of assault causing grievous bodily harm and obstructing police in the lawful execution of their duties.
Anyone who may have witnessed the incident is asked to contact George Town CID at 949-4222 or 649-4222.
