June 27, 2017

One man has been taken into custody in connection with the assault and robbery of a policeman in Spanish Town yesterday.

The arrest was as a result of swift action by members of the Spanish Town Criminal Investigation Branch.

The gun was stolen from the detective at the bus park in the old capital yesterday.

Reports are that at about 4 p.m., the policeman was inside a bus at the Municipal Bus Park along Burke Road, when he was held from behind by a man outside the bus.

Three other thugs then boarded the bus and disarmed him of his weapon.

The policeman was beaten and sustained a cut to his face and other parts of his upper body.
