Cop accused of breaking man's ankle to meet INDECOM

March 20, 2018

The Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) says the police officer who is alleged to have used his service baton to hit a 'loader man' causing injury, is to give his account of the incident before the week ends.

"The officer is going to come in for an interview and we expect him to do so before the end of this week," INDECOM's director of complaints, Errol Chattoo, told the WESTERN STAR.

He said investigators from his office have already collected a statement from the injured man and are awaiting the arrival of the police officer who has been fingered in the baton wheeling incident to advance their investigations.

Chattoo also said his office is seeking the assistance of persons who may have witnessed the incident to come forward with the information they have.

"We are still appealing to the person who recorded the video to come in and give us their account of the incident along with any other eyewitnesses to come to us," he said.

The police officer in question has since been removed from front line duties, but not before laying criminal charges against the injured man who is said to be hospitalised with a broken ankle.
